An intravenous pyelogram, or IVP, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses x-ray to visualize the kidneys, ureters and bladder. An IVP technologist performs the exam and the pediatric radiologist reviews the images. An IVP shows how well your child's kidneys drain urine and if he has any problems, such as blockage or swelling.
How Boston Children's Hospital approaches IVPs
IVPs are performed in our Division of Diagnostic Radiology, which has an experienced team of pediatric radiologists, nurses, technologists and a Child Life specialist dedicated to making your child's visit as safe, pleasant and comfortable as possible.
