Cystography and voiding cystourethrography may be used to evaluate the bladder for other causes of irritative lower urinary tract symptoms, including the following:

  • Intravesical masses

  • Bladder diverticula
  • Urethral diverticula
  • Urethral stricture
  • Meatal stenosis
  • Findings suggestive of a neurogenic or nonneurogenic voiding dysfunction
