Loopogram

Dr Matt A. Morgan and Dr Ian Bickle et al.

A loopogram is a fluoroscopic study of an ileal conduit, which is a type of urinary diversion.

Terminology

This procedure is also known is an ileal conduitogram, ileal loopography or ileostoureterography

Procedure

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.
