Intravenous pyelogram

  1. 1. DEPARTMENT OF UROLOGY EDUCATION Production Team Dr Abraham Benjamin - Manager Medical Informatics Mr. Naresh Kumar - Coordinator Medical Informatics Intra Venous Pyelogram (IVP)
  2. 2. What is Intra Venous Pyelogram?  An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is a special x-ray examination of the kidneys, bladder, and ureters.  It is also called Intravenous Urogram.  An Intravenous Pyelogram can show the size, shape, and position of the urinary tract, and it can evaluate the collecting system inside the kidneys.  Intravenous Pyelogram can be done as a emergency Procedure without any preparation.
  3. 3. Anatomy of the Urinary Tract
  4. 4. Why is the test performed? An Intravenous Pyelogram can be used to evaluate:  An abdominal injury.  Bladder and kidney infections.  Blood in the urine.  Flank pain (possibly due to kidney stones).  Tumors.
  5. 5. How is it performed ?  During Intravenous Pyelogram, a dye called contrast material is injected into a vein into the patients arm. A series of X-ray pictures is then taken at timed intervals.  An ultrasound or a computed tomography (CT) scan may be combined with an Intravenous Pyelogram if more details about the urinary tract are needed.  In Patients with kidney failure or suspected renal failure the contrast can damage the kidneys further.  The test should be done in a X Ray Department where a doctor is available as on occasions the contrast can cause severe reactions which may lead to medical emergencies.
  6. 6. What is the Preparation Required for the Procedure ?  The patient may need to be fasting for 8 to 12 hours before the Intravenous Pyelogram.  The Patient also may need to take a laxative the evening before the test and possibly have an enema the morning of the test to make sure that the bowels are empty.
