urography

X-ray examination of the urinary system using a CONTRAST MEDIUM to show the outline of the interior of the urinary drainage system and the bladder. The contrast medium is usually an iodine-containing solution given either by way of a vein (intravenous urography) or passed back up the URETERS using a fine tube inserted through a CYSTOSCOPE (retrograde urography).

As such, a CT urogram was performed to clarify the nature of this cystic structure.
Materials and Methods: Over a period of 2 months, case records of all patients referred to the radiology department for intravenous urography were retrospectively analysed for their indications for referral and the findings of the urogram and variations in the pelvi-calyceal system.
The shorter was the duration of presenting complaints the lesser were the chances of picking pathology on urogram as seen in 43% patients who had few week's complaints and showed a normal urogram.
Examples of such tests are intravenous pyelogram (IVP), urogram, angiography, and myelography.
Follow-up included history, physical examination, basic bloodwork, urinalysis and cytology, chest imaging, cystoscopy and computed tomography urograms. These were performed at intervals of 3 to 6 months initially and then yearly after the initial 2 to 3 years.
Often on a workstation, CT urograms are frequently reviewed utilizing multiplanar reformations, maximum intensity projections (MIP), and 3-dimensional volume-rendered images.
A total of 838 CT urograms obtained for these indications had cystoscopic correlation.
Enhanced spiral CT scanning is now considered superior to intravenous urograms or ultrasound for the detection of urinary stones and perirenal infections.
On intravenous pyelogram (IVU) or retrograde urograms (RU), FEP appear to be long, smooth ureteral filling defects and are also associated with varying degrees of hydronephrosis.[sup.10] It is crucial to distinguish FEP from other upper urinary tract carcinomas, such as transitional cell carcinoma, because the management and prognosis can be significantly different.
