Magnetic resonance Urogram (MRU)

  • The disadvantage of MRU is that the study often requires general anesthesia or heavy conscious sedation in children.
  • MRU introduces prognostic information by assessment of the quality of the renal parenchyma and the identification of the site of obstruction, as well as renal transit time and calyceal transit time together with the excretory curve.
  • It provides better anatomic detail than RBUS and assessment of both the function and morphology of the upper urinary tract without radiation.
