The purpose of this study is to identify ways to decrease the discomfort/trauma pediatric patients have experienced in the Voiding Cystourethrogram procedure (VCUG).

You must be a) 18 years of age or older and b) have gone through VCUG as a child to participate in this study.

The questionnaire asks you about the hospital where your VCUG(s) took place, who may have referred you to take the VCUG, what parts of the procedure you remember, your feelings during specific parts of the procedure, and about behaviors, symptoms, and diagnoses you may have after the procedure.

At the end of the survey, you may write down ways you think the procedure can improve, in addition to writing anything you would like to write down, including your testimony, thoughts, wishes for other VCUG participants, etc..

Participation entails completing this web-based survey that takes approximate [20-30] minutes to complete.
