An intravenous pyelogram (IVP), also called intravenous urography, is a test that evaluates problems in the urinary tract using contrast dye and X-rays. This test is commonly used to identify kidney stones, tumors and other causes of kidney or bladder problems.

How You Benefit

IVP helps your doctor see the urinary organs at work, providing crucial information for accurately diagnosing kidney and bladder conditions and determining the most effective treatment options.
