CT urography and MR urography are an evolving concept and developing technique. As the technology matures, CT urography will combine the ultimate diagnostic capabilities of intravenous urography and CT. In the near future, many intravenous urograms will be replaced by CT urography to evaluate patients with hematuria and other genitourinary conditions. MR urography currently serves as an alternative imaging technique to intravenous urography and CT urography for children and pregnant women and for patients with contraindications to iodinated contrast media.
