(IVP) was conducted in two patients with ureteral injury and the results indicated that the injuries were all located at the left ureteral lower segment in the vicinity of the bladder entrance.
Where a CT scan is unavailable, an intravenous pyelogram
may be performed to help confirm the diagnosis of urolithiasis.
The spasmodic nature of the pain, nausea, vomiting, pain radiating from the flank into the groin with fever, blood and/or white cells in the urine are usually a pretty straightforward diagnosis confirmed by an intravenous pyelogram
Human leukocyte antigen typing revealed the presence of A1, A2, B41, B57, Cw6/7, DR11, and DR13 while a urinary system ultrasound and an intravenous pyelogram
Frequently, intravenous pyelogram
and retrograde pyelographic studies are normal.
The kidneys, ureters, and bladder can also be x-rayed as contrast dye passes through them to detect blockages (intravenous pyelogram
We would admit a child with a UTI to the hospital, start antimicrobial therapy, do an intravenous pyelogram
after a negative urine culture, and keep the child on antibiotics for a month until the follow-up vesicoureterogram (VCUG).
4) has largely replaced the intravenous pyelogram
Other tests may include a kidney and bladder ultrasound; an intravenous pyelogram
(IVP), which involves injecting a liquid that can be seen on x-rays to highlight any obstructions in the kidney or bladder; or nuclear scans, tests that use radioactive material injected into a vein to reveal how well the kidneys and bladder are functioning.
Radiology procedures that use IV dye include coronary angiography, computed tomography scan, and intravenous pyelogram
(Merten et al., 2004).
For further evaluation, ultrasonography with abdominal radiography appears at least as accurate as an intravenous pyelogram
(IVP) for detecting urinary tract abnormalities such as hydronephrosis, stones, or outlet obstruction (SOR: C; single small poor-quality cohort study).
The doctor also should do an imaging study of the urinary tract--typically with a computed tomography (CT) scan or an X-ray known as an intravenous pyelogram
(IVP)--as well as a cystoscopy, in which a thin scope is inserted through the penis and urethra into the bladder to examine the lining and biopsy suspicious tissue.
