What is a voiding cysto-urethrogram (VCUG)?

A voiding cysto-urethrogram is a test that uses X-rays and contrast liquid to take pictures of how your urine/pee leaves your body. The contrast liquid looks just like water.

Why is the test done?

These pictures will help the doctor see how well your bladder is working. The bladder is a special place in the body that holds your urine/pee.
