Conventional imaging studies such as ultrasonography, intravenous urography, micturating cystourethrography, and radionuclide scintigraphy are the basic investigations used in daily clinical practice for the diagnosis and monitoring of obstructive uropathy in children. Magnetic resonance urography imaging has emerged during the last 10 years, owing to its potential and success as a means of solving problems related to various pathological conditions. The purpose of this paper was to present an institutional experience on magnetic resonance urography in children. The techniques involved and their indications together with a review of literature are discussed.
