Procedure for a pyelography

  • A pyelography takes half an hour on average.
  • An X‑ray of the kidneys is initially performed without contrast agent in order to detect the presence of stones.
  • A contrast agent is then injected intravenously into the arm vein, and images are recorded in an interval of 5 to 10 minutes in order to depict the urinary passage and its functions.
