Term Description

In urology, a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG), also micturating cystourethrogram (MCUG), is a technique for watching a person's urethra and urinary bladder while the person urinates (voids). The technique consists of catheterizing the person in order to fill the bladder with a radiopaque liquid (a "contrast" or "contrast agent", typically cystografin). Under fluoroscopy (real time x-rays) the radiologist watches the contrast enter the bladder and looks at the anatomy of the patient. If the contrast moves into the ureters and back into the kidneys, the radiologist makes the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux, and gives the degree of severity a score. The exam ends when the person voids on the table while the radiologist is watching under fluoroscopy. Consumption of fluid promotes exertion of contrast media after the procedure. It is important to watch the contrast during voiding, because this is when the bladder has the most pressure, and it is most likely this is when reflux will occur.

Change Reason
The scale has been changed from "Nar" to "Doc" to fit with the CDA model. Changed System from "Urinary bladder+Urethra" for conformance with the LOINC/RadLex unified model.; Method of "XR.fluor" was changed to "RF". The LOINC/RadLex Committee agreed to use a subset of the two-letter DICOM modality codes as the primary modality identifier.; Added "+" in the Component Challenge between the contrast & manuever based on the LOINC/Radlex unified model.
