A Whitaker test is a minimally invasive, image guided treatment used to measure the pressures in the kidney and bladder to determine whether or not an obstruction exists in your child's urinary system. It detects subtle obstructions that cannot be detected by imaging or other means.
This test is performed by interventional radiologists who are highly trained to conduct this procedure on infants and children.
In addition to the interventional radiologist, your child will be treated by a team of anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, nurses and technologists who specialize in caring for children undergoing interventional radiology procedures and treatments.
We perform Whitaker tests in the interventional radiology suite on the second floor of the hospital, which features three procedure rooms equipped with the latest imaging technology, a recovery area for patients who have received sedation or anesthesia and examining rooms for outpatient visits.
