(EN)Graduated catheters including, but not limited to, graduated urethral and ureteric catheters are provided. The catheters each comprising a catheter tube (10), an expandable portion (22), and at least one indicator (24). The position of at least one indicator may be determined by an extra-corporeal imaging method. A kit comprising a matched pair of graduated catheters is also provided, wherein the position within a bodily lumen of a subject of at least one indicator of a graduated locator catheter of the kit has a known relationship to the position within the body lumen of at least one indicator of a graduated delivery catheter of the kit. Brachytherapy methods are also provided, including methods of treating urethral and ureteric strictures, prostate cancer, and benign prostatic therapy.
