Keywords:Cystography, Urinary system, Radiography, Dogs
Following previous studies in cistography technics, as well the anatomical and radiographycs aspects of the urinary bladder, we used this technic in 226 dogs with urinary bladder diseases referred to the Radiology Section over a 4 year period. We observed in a higher frequency irregularity of the mucosal surface due to chronic inflamation of the bladder, with no sex prevalence. In a lower frequency, the caudal dislocations of the urinary bladder are noted exclusively in the males. The cranial dislocations were seen more in males. The radiopaque calculus are more frequent in females. The bladder ruptures were seen in the males only. The ventral dislocation were more frequent in females and, finally in only two cases the failure in the filling of the urinary were observed in females.
