Also known as: IVP.
Intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is a form of X-ray. It gives health care providers a better view of how waste fluid flows through the renal and urinary system by highlighting the bladder, ureters and kidneys with a special dye.
As the patient lies on his or her back, a special “scout” X-ray is performed first. Then the contrast dye is injected into a vein. After allowing time for the dye to move to the kidneys, ureters and bladder, a series of additional X-rays are taken. These are then analyzed to look for problems in the renal and urinary systems.
