Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout helps people prepare for an intravenous pyelogram (IVP), which is a test using X-rays with intravenously injected contrast dye to check for kidney stones and other diseases of the kidneys and bladder. It clarifies that people with allergies and women who are or might be pregnant should tell the staff before the test. It contains step-by-step instructions for what the patient must do on the morning of their test to make sure their bowel is empty of all stool. The document explains what will happen during the test, and discusses what the patient can do after.
