CT IVP (Intravenous Pyelogram)

Ct Ivp

A CT IVP is a specialized imaging procedure used to evaluate the urinary system, specifically the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. This diagnostic test provides crucial information about the anatomy and function of these structures. During a CT IVP, contrast dye is injected into a vein, and sequential images are taken as the dye travels through the urinary system. This imaging technique allows healthcare providers to assess various aspects of kidney and urinary tract health. It can identify kidney stones, tumours, congenital abnormalities, and obstructions within the urinary system. Additionally, it can evaluate the size and shape of the kidneys and the condition of the ureters, which are the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Furthermore, a CT IVP can provide information about the bladder’s shape and capacity and detect conditions like urinary reflux or structural abnormalities.

In clinical practice, a CT IVP is a valuable tool for diagnosing and managing a range of urinary tract conditions. Urologists and radiologists use the information gathered from this imaging study to determine the cause of symptoms such as flank pain, blood in the urine, or recurrent urinary tract infections. It aids in identifying kidney stones for targeted treatment, assessing the presence of tumours, and guiding surgical planning when necessary.
