 Radionuclide Cystogram (RNC)
 
Radionuclide Cystogram (RNC)Radionuclide cystograms (RNCs) are tests that employ nuclear medicine to study pathologies like vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). This is a medical condition where, instead of flowing in a one-way direction from the kidneys to the ureters, bladder and urethra, urine flows backward. This can result in serious complications, such as renal scarring and failure.
