Cystography is a procedure used to visualise the urinary bladder and sometimes urethra - the tube that delivers urine out of the bladder during voiding. Cystography can use contrast dyes or a chain cystogram to show the angle and position of the bladder, urethra and bladder neck.

Cystography should not be performed on pregnant women.
