CT urography, including of the upper urinary tract collecting system, is recommended in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) treatment guidelines as part of this initial evaluation of a patient with suspected bladder cancer.

Magnetic resonance urography may be appropriate in patients with poor renal function or iodinated contrast allergy who have an estimated glomerular filtration rate > 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 and no acute renal failure.

Renal ultrasound or CT without contrast may be utilized in conjunction with retrograde ureteropyelography in patients who cannot receive either iodinated or gadolinium-based contrast material.
