A loopogram is a fluoroscopic study of an ileal conduit, which is a type of urinary diversion.
This procedure is also known is an ileal conduitogram, ileal loopography or ileostoureterography.
It is a retrograde study in which contrast is injected via the anterior abdominal wall stoma of ileal conduit. The stoma is initially ''catheterised'' with a urinary catheter to allow access.
A series of images are taken in a number of positions to assess the conduit - in the majority of cases a postoperative stricture being the chief clinical concern.
It is typical to observe contrast entering the ureters during the procedure.
