A VCUG is a test that uses x-ray images to take pictures of your child’s kidneys, ureters and bladder to see how well they are working. Urine is made in the kidneys. Once urine is made, it flows down tiny tubes called ureters into the bladder.
A VCUG helps the doctor determine if your child has any problems with their anatomy, including if your child has reflux. This is a condition when the urine has a reverse flow back into the kidneys from the bladder.
This is our special X-ray machine that will take pictures of your child's bladder.
Child Life Specialists are trained professionals who help children and families understand and cope with the hospital environment. A Child Life Specialist may be available to help prepare and support your child during the test. To speak to a Child Life Specialist prior to your appointment, please call 423-778-6818.
