Doctors use imaging to identify the causes of problems with the urinary tract, such as frequent urination, incontinence, and kidney failure. You can learn more by reading Imaging of the Urinary Tract, a fact sheet that explains the range of imaging technologies used to evaluate the urinary tract, including ultrasound, conventional radiology, magnetic resonance imaging, and computerized tomography. The fact sheet also explains how to prepare for an exam and what to expect.
