Imaging after Bladder Reconstruction or Diversion

In some cases, the bladder function is so poor that the only way urine expulsion can be maintained is to reconstruct the bladder, either by total diversion or surgical augmentation. In either case, the radiological anatomy will be much altered and this micro skills course describes the various types of reconstructions that may be encountered and their radiological evaluation.
