MR voiding cystography for evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2009 May;192(5):W206-11. doi: 10.2214/AJR.08.1251.


Objective: The purpose of our study is to present a real-time interactive continuous fluoroscopy MRI technique for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) diagnosis.

Conclusion: MR voiding cystography with a real-time interactive MR fluoroscopic technique on an open MRI magnet is feasible for the evaluation of VUR in children.
