(This procedure/test may also be known as: Bladder Scan, Retrograde Cystography)
A cystogram is an x-ray examination of the urinary bladder. A cystogram can show the bladder's position and shape, and the exam often is used to diagnose a condition called reflux. Reflux occurs when urine in the bladder moves back up the ureters, the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder. This condition can cause repeated urinary tract infections. Cystograms also are used to detect polyps or tumors in the bladder.
