Overview


What is MR Urography?

An MR urography creates picture of the upper urinary tracts (kidneys and ureter), urinary bladder and its surrounding soft tissues. This is a radiationless test which uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed multiple images. The images captured during the MRI scan can be stored on an electronic device and printed on a film.

Why is MR Urography done?

  1. To diagnose any suspected urinary tract obstruction or congenital abnormalities (absent kidney, renal duplication)
  2. To diagnose the presence of any suspected urinary tract tumor (abnormal growth of tissue)
  3. To diagnose hydronephrosis (swelling of the kidney which results in urine backflow), stone in the kidney / ureter / urinary bladder or gall stones (in the gall bladder)
  4. To detect the cause of blood in the urine (hematuria) and presence of any kidney/bladder stones
