Pielograma intravenoso

El pielograma intravenoso se realiza inyectando un medio de contraste en una vena del brazo. Se toma una serie de rayos X a intervalos de tiempo mientras el medio de contraste pasa por los riñones, los uréteres (los tubos que conectan los riñones con la vejiga) y la vejiga. El procedimiento ayuda a evaluar la condición de riñones, uréteres y vejiga.Pielograma intravenoso
