Intravenous pyelogram  

An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is a specialized radiographic examination of the kidneys, collecting system, and bladder. Contrast dye is injected into an intravenous line, and serial radiographs are obtained as the dye gets filtered and excreted by the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. The anatomy of the renal collecting system, ureters, and bladder, as well as subtle physiologic changes in relative kidney function, can then be assessed.


Identify the following:

1. kidneys

2. ureters

3. bladder

4. minor calyx

5. major calyx

6. renal pelvis
