[Contrast-enhanced sonourethrography versus conventional miction cystourethrography in the assessment of the urethra: preliminary study].

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) is the first choice imaging modality for assessing the urethra, but this technique exposes patients to ionizing radiation. Cystosonography with echocontrast (CS) has proved to be a reliable technique to detect and grade vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) without exposing patients to ionizing radiation, but its… (More)
