What is CT Urography?
Urography is an examination used to evaluate the kidneys, ureters and bladder. Computed tomography (CT) urography use CT images to obtain images of the urinary tract. CT urography (CTU) is used as primary imaging techniques to evaluate patients with blood in the urine (hematuria), follow patients with prior history of cancers of the urinary collecting system and to identify abnormalities in patients with recurrent urinary tract infections. In addition to imaging the urinary tract, CT urography can provide valuable information about other abdominal and pelvic structures and diseases that affect them.
