    Hi everyone
    Surgeon performs resection of the bladder, places a ureteral stent, and submits retrograde intraop uretogram to radiology. (surgery for cancer and hydronephrosis).
    radiologist reads intraop uretogram indicating good stent placement and normal flow into ureters and kidney. What dx do you use for the radiologist??

    Maybe stick with the dx for the surgery? (cancer & hydronephrosis)

    Yes, I would use the same dx as they would for the surgical portion.
