Computerised Tomography (CT) Urography Test

A computerised tomography (CT) urography is a type of imaging exam used to assess the urinary tract. The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, the bladder, and the tubes (ureters) that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder.

A CT urography generates multiple images of a slice of the area of your body being studied, including bones, soft tissues, and blood vessels, using X-rays. These images are then transferred to a computer where they are quickly reconstructed into detailed 2D images.

An X-ray dye (iodine contrast material) is injected into a vein in your hand or arm during a CT urography. The dye flows into the kidneys, ureters, and bladder, highlighting each structure. X-ray images are taken at specific points during the exam so that your doctor can see your urinary tract clearly and assess how well it is working.

The kidneys, ureters, and bladder are examined using a CT urography. It allows your doctor to examine the size and shape of these structures in order to determine if they are functioning properly and to look for any signs of disease that may affect your urinary system.

If you have signs and symptoms of a urinary tract disorder, such as pain in your side or back or blood in your urine (haematuria), your doctor may recommend a CT urography.

A CT urography may aid in the diagnosis of urinary tract conditions such as:

  • Stones in the kidney
  • Stones in the bladder
  • Infections that are complicated
  • Cysts or tumours
  • Cancer structural issues.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or suspect you are pregnant before having a CT urography. Though the risk to an unborn baby is low, your doctor may advise you to wait or use another imaging test.

Tell your doctor if you have any of the following conditions before having a CT urography:


Do you have any allergies, especially to iodine?

Are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant Have previously experienced a severe reaction to X-ray dyes

Are you taking any medications, including metformin (Fort met, Glucophage, and others), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), anti-rejection medications, or antibiotics?

Have you recently been ill?

Have a medical condition such as heart disease, asthma, diabetes, kidney disease, or a previous organ transplant

Before a CT urography, you may be asked to drink water and not urinate until after the procedure. This causes your bladder to expand. However, depending on your condition, the recommendations for what to eat and drink before your CT urography may differ.

You typically lie on your back on an exam table for a CT urography, though you may be asked to lie on your side or stomach. Straps and pillows may be used to assist you in maintaining the proper position and remaining still during the exam. During the CT urography, you may be asked to change positions.

When the test is finished, the IV line is removed from your arm and the IV entry point is dressed. After the test, most people resume their normal activities. 

A Computerised Tomography (CT) Urography Test is typically performed in a hospital's radiology department or an outpatient imaging facility. So, for the best services and reliable results, schedule your test at Ganesh Diagnostic in Yamuna Vihar.
