The Day of Your Cystogram and How to Prepare

Our staff will inform you of any preparation instructions and your appointment check-in time prior to your exam. A technologist will bring you into the procedure room, answer any questions you may have and prepare you for this procedure.

The radiologist will place a catheter in the bladder. The bladder is filled with contrast and images are obtained by X-ray. The catheter will be removed and you will then be directed to restroom to void. This is followed by additional images to see how much urine is left in your bladder.
