What should I do after the examination?
After the examination you can carry on your everyday routine. Voiding Urosonography is a safe examination well tolerated by the most children and there are no adverse events related to contrast agent reported. In a recently published study performed as a survey among European radiologic institutions showed that no adverse events attributed to the administration of the US contrast agent were reported from more than 4000 children who underwent contrast-enhanced Voiding Urosonography.
During the first voiding after the examination some children may feel itchy which is normal and self-subsided after a few hours. Some children that have difficulties to pass urine after the examination because they are afraid that it will be painful will be helped if they’ll have a warm bath or showers. In the rare case a child feels pain the usual painkillers will relieve the symptoms.
