Using a contrast dye, you will be able to see the structures inside your urinary system
During the cturogram procedure, your radiologist will inject a contrast dye into a vein in your hand or arm, which will be seen on the ct scan. The ct scan is noninvasive and requires the patient to lie down within a scanner while pictures of the urinary system are taken in cross-sectional or three-dimensional (3d) views. Your hand or arm may feel warm, and you may have a metallic taste in your mouth for a short period when the contrast material is injected into your hand or arm. It will take around 90 minutes to finish your cturogram.
