The provider creates a new access route percutaneously (through a small incision made in the patient’s skin) and injects contrast material into the ureters (ureterogram) or kidney (nephrostogram) to analyze the internal structures of the kidneys, renal pelvis, and/or ureters using imaging guidance. The provider typically performs this procedure to assess nephrostomy or pyelostomy tube function, identify blockage in the ureteropelvic junction, or check for urine leakage around the tube insertion site. The procedure covers the complete diagnostic procedure and all radiological supervision and interpretation.
