Abstract
The purpose of our study is to evaluate the accuracy of indirect voiding urosonography in combination with ureteric jet Doppler waveform analysis in detecting vesicoureteral reflux in children in comparison with direct voiding urosonography where the use of ultrasound contrast media and catheterisation are required. Published data and our studies done so far indicate, that vesicoureteric reflux could possibly be detected by indirect voiding urosonography combined with ureteric jet Doppler waveform analysis, thus eliminating the cost of contrast media, invasive catheterisation and radiation burden to the patient.
Significance for science
We have become one of most recognized groups og those, who seek for new, patient friendly methods in evaluation children with urinary tract infection.
