Cistouretrograma de eliminación

Uno de los métodos para examinar la función de la vejiga es el inyectar un líquido de contraste que es visible a los rayos X a través de un catéter que llene la vejiga. Las radiografías se toman con la vejiga llena y mientras el paciente está orinando (durante el vaciado) para determinar si el líquido es forzado a salir de la vejiga a través de la uretra, que es lo normal, o si sube por los uréteres hacia el riñón, es decir, que hay reflujo vesicoureteral. Este estudio, por lo general, se hace con el paciente acostado sobre una mesa de rayos X.
