Summary

In this procedure, the provider injects contrast material through an indwelling ureteral catheter already in place or a previously created opening between the skin and ureter. He then performs a separately reportable X–ray examination of the ureter and renal pelvis. He performs this procedure to evaluate the ureterostomy tube for any defects or abnormal functioning of the tube or to identify any symptoms that could indicate reasons for pain, blockage, or urine leakage around the ureterostomy tube insertion site.
