Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography in the diagnosis of intrarenal reflux.

J Ultrasound 2021 Feb 26. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Children's Hospital Zagreb, Ul. Vjekoslava Klaića 16, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia.

Purpose: Although contrast-enhanced urosonography (ceVUS) has shown capable diagnostic accuracy for the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children, the ability of ceVUS to detect intrarenal reflux (IRR) is considered limited. The purpose of our study is to assess the ability of ceVUS to detect IRR as well as its association with age, gender, and the grade of VUR.

Methods: This study included 5153 children who were referred to our clinic for ceVUS. Read More

Assessment of distal ureteral and ureterovesical junction visualization on contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography.

Pediatr Radiol 2021 Feb 12. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Department of Medical Imaging, Ann & Robert Lurie Children's Hospital, 225 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL, 60611, USA.

Background: Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (CEVUS) uses intravesically administered microbubble contrast to detect vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and urethral anomalies with ultrasound. Multiple studies have suggested CEVUS can replace voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) as a radiation-free alternative. Analysis of the ureterovesical junction and ureters on VCUG documenting the ureterovesical junction position, ureteral duplication, periureteral diverticula and ureteroceles is important as anatomical variations may affect management and surgical approach.

Two-dimensional (2D), three-dimensional static (3D) and real-time (4D) contrast enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS) versus voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) in children with vesicoureteral reflux.

Eur J Radiol 2016 Jun 5;85(6):1238-45. Epub 2015 Nov 5.

Department of Pediatric Surgery and Traumatology, Medical University of Lublin, Al. Racławickie 1, Lublin 20-059, Poland.

Background: Two-dimensional (2DUS) contrast enhanced voiding urosonography has been used in the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of the vesicoureteral reflux in children for over 15 years. The opportunity of performing this examination with the use of three-dimensional static (3DUS) and real-time (4DUS) techniques opens up new diagnostic horizons.

Objective: To analyze if 3DUS/4DUS bring additional information leading to an increased detection rate or change in the grading of reflux compared to 2DUS and voiding cystouretrography. Read More
