Objectives: We aimed to compare color DUS without the application of contrast enhancement and direct radionuclide voiding cystography (DRC) to assess the capability of color DUS without contrast in the detection and grading of VUR with respect to the sex and age of patients, as well as the severity of VUR.Material and Methods: In the 66 patients enrolled (56 girls, 10 boys), 132 reno-ureteral units were investigated. All patients underwent DUS and DRC within 3 hours. DRC was used as the… CONTINUE READING
