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.
