cystography

 [sis-tog´rah-fe]
radiography of the urinary bladder using a contrast medium, so that its outline can be seen clearly. This type of examination frequently is part of a complete x-ray study of the kidneys, urethra, and ureters as well as the bladder. (See also pyelography.) It is useful in diagnosing tumors or other defects in the bladder wall, vesicoureteral reflux, and calculi or other pathologic conditions of the bladder.

The investigation of choice is plain film cystography, which should include anteroposterior, oblique, or lateral and postdrain views; computed tomography scan cystography is more ideal in patients undergoing computed tomography scan for other injuries associated with blunt trauma.

Cystography was performed at 12 months, and urography and a clinical evaluation was performed at 24 and 36 months.
6) We performed cystography for diagnosis in the presented case because we suspected perforation of the bladder.

False negative results are likely due to the fact that these patients are usually seen first by non-urologists and the cystography was the diagnostic modality of choice.
To properly answer that question, three measures should be performed; combined retrograde urethrography with cystography, ultrasound of the urethra, and endoscopic study.
Therefore, other routes of administration that might lead to systemic absorption and an allergic-like, acute contrast reaction include any of the following, particularly in the presence of intravasation: endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERCP) with aggressive injection; retrograde ureteropyelography with injection that results in pyelovenous backflow and/or retrograde urethrography; extensive leak into the retroperitoneum or during hysterosalpingography; and cystography with bladder rupture or leak.
The bladder had been poorly filled on cystography, but the study had still suggested an irregularity of the posterior bladder wall, which was also noted on ultrasonography.
