Definitions for "Cystogram"
Keywords:  bladder, urethra, reflux, ray, ivu
an x-ray of the inside of the bladder. This is typically accomplished by passing a catheter through the child's urethra and filling the bladder. Most cystograms are done to look for the presence of reflux of urine back into the kidneys, which is very common in the exstrophy patients, and to measure bladder capacity. Cystograms may be done under anesthesia with gently passing the contrast through the catheter under gravity to accurately measure the bladder capacity and look for reflux.
An x-ray of the bladder to see if reflux, the movement of urine backward into the bladder, is present.
