WHAT IS NEPHROTOMOGRAPHY TEST?

WHAT IS NEPHROTOMOGRAPHY TEST?

Radiographic examination of a single plane of renal tissue. It is a routine procedure performed during urography. Delineates renal borders and aids in distinguishing cystic from solid lesions. Precisely locating the kidneys, however, can be difficult. Nephrotomography may be performed with excretory urography (intravenous pyelography). The use of this test for the detection of nephrolithiasis is decreasing as the newer technique of three-dimensional spiral computed tomography equals the accuracy of nephrotomography for this purpose.
