“The voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) is a frequently performed test to diagnose a variety of urologic conditions, such as vesicoureteral reflux. The test results determine whether continued observation or an interventional procedure is indicated.” — Establishing a Standard Protocol for the Voiding Cystourethrography, Dominic Frimberger, Maria-Gisela Mercado-Deane, SECTION ON UROLOGY and SECTION ON RADIOLOGY, Pediatrics Nov. 2016, 138 (5) e20162590

“Micturating cystourethrograms (MCUGs) are commonly requested to exclude vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). Useful additional information including timing and bladder volume at the start of reflux, urethral anomalies and post-void drainage can be obtained from the cystograms, but are not routinely reported by radiologists.” C. Walsh, K. Wessely, D. De Caluwe, N. Rahman, M.K. Farrugia, jpurol (2020) 16, 790.e1 –790.e6

Dr. Frimberger was the lead author of American Academy of Pediatric SECTION ON UROLOGY, 2016 VCUG Guidelines. Dr. Farrugia was the lead author of an MCUG article published in the December 2020 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Urology. Please join us for a lecture about what information should be collected from a VCUG and how to get those results from your colleagues in radiology and pediatrics.
