IVP

X-rays will be taken of your kidneys, ureters and bladder prior to administration of intravenous contrast.

The radiologist will start an intravenous line to administer contrast.

What is Intravenous Contrast?

  • Intravenous contrast is an iodinated compound. It is injected through an intravenous line during the examination. During the injection you may feel flushed and get a metallic taste in your mouth.
  • It is important to tell the technician and your doctor if you have had a previous allergic reaction to iodinated contrast.

X-rays will be taken of the kidneys, ureters and bladder at timed intervals after contrast administration while the contrast is taken up by the kidneys and excreted into the ureters and bladder.
