VCUG
 
Voiding Cystourethrography radiographic imaging of the urinary bladder and urethra done with a contrast medium while the patient is urinating.
CAPD
 
Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis type of renal dialysis in which an indwelling catheter in the abdomen permits fluid to drain into and out of the peritoneal cavity to cleanse the blood
HD
 
Hemodialysis type of renal dialysis that cleanses the blood by shuting it from the body through a machine for diffusion and ultrafiltration and then returning it to the patient's circulation.
ileal conduit
 
channel, pipe, or tube that guides urine from the ureters to the ileum in the digestive system to be excreted through the large intestine, when the bladder is no longer available for storing the urine and releasing it through the urethra. Also known as (uretheroileostomy) (yoo ree tur oh ill ee AH stuh mee)
