24-Hour Urine Collection
Urine is the key unlocking a lot about the functional performance of kidneys, bladder, and ureter. 24-hour collected sample of urine is an essential requirement, and part of the diagnosis for all types of kidney problems. Samples are carefully collected and preserved in our testing laboratories that have climatic conditions set as per the requirement of samples to maintain their originality..
makes use of dye to get detailed images of the upper urinary tract that constitute of kidney and ureter. Through CT scan kidneys, are traced, followed by numbing the skin on them and inserting the dye into the renal collection system. X-ray images provide further details about the functioning problems in the urinary tract. Sometimes nephrostomy tubes are used to inject contrasting dyes into the urinary tract, followed by X-ray reviews..
Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Kidney
CT scan is much advanced than X-rays providing better, and minute details about the organ or area that undergoes CT scan. CT scan of the urinary system enables a better insight into the functioning of different components of the urinary system by providing a cross-sectional view that is processed through the computer to produce a three-dimensional picture. It gives detailed and voluminous information about the pathologies in the affected area.
Cryotherapy for Prostate Cancer
is an alternative for surgical removal of the prostate gland. It involves small incisions as tiny needles pass argon gas into cancer-causing cells and freeze them.
is an analysis of the bladder’s capacity to expel and contract urine. It plots the graph on a screen depicting the contractile force of the bladder when urinating. Cystemtograph helps the doctors to study the extent and nature of various disorders like sclerosis, stones, infection, and urethral obstruction, to name a few.
Cystoscopy for Women
Cystoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that involves the use of long and thin lighted tube inserted into the urethra. The cystoscope tube provides the visualization of the urethra, bladder, and also enables the surgeon to perform surgical operations using surgical instruments. Cystoscopy is used for obtaining biopsy and as a therapeutic measure as well. It helps in identifying problems like early cancer, strictures, obstruction, and bleeding.
provides the doctor with a detailed image, shape, and size of the kidney, bladder, and ureter that helps the doctor to analyze the problem in their functionality. It facilitates diagnosing the disorders affecting the urinary tract. The process involves the insertion of contrast dye into the body. It travels through the urinary tract and is imaged through X-ray to know the working of the latter.
Kidney biopsy involves the removal of a piece of tissue for analyzing it under the microscope and tracing the signs of disease or damage. The process is both a part of treatment and also a diagnosis. Very often, doctors make use of percutaneous kidney biopsy in which imaging device helps the doctor in inserting the needle into the kidneys and removing a piece of tissue.
involves inserting a small amount of radioactive material into the body through veins. The computer detects the traces of radioactive material in the body and makes images accordingly. The test helps doctors in analyzing the blood supply to and fro from the kidneys, reflux of urine, infections, and many other related issues in more detail.
The need for kidney transplant arrives when there is kidney failure making it impossible for kidneys to filter the fluid, known as end-stage renal disease. It calls for dialysis or replacing them. This procedure of transplanting the kidneys from living or deceased donors to the receptor is kidney transplantation. The kidney transplant process has a high success rate, although the efficiency and effectiveness of transplantation depend on the care and concern person shows towards his health after transplantation..
A kidney ultrasound is a process that makes use of ultrasonic waves to produce images of the kidney. The high-frequency sound waves that travel through the body are echoes that, when recorded digitally, show the organs and tissues under study.
Kidney, Ureter, and Bladder X-ray
This type of X-ray may be done to check the stomach for causes of stomach pain. It may also be done to check the organs and structures of the urinary or GI system. The X-ray may be the first diagnostic procedure used to check the urinary system.
is a procedure that helps to break big stones into small pieces that develop within the urinary system. Smaller stones many times pass through the urine without even a person noticing it. However, big ones can be the cause of the problem leading to infection, pain, and blockage in urine, and calling for immediate action. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy makes use of sound waves to break the stones without affecting any organ, muscle, or bone in the body. Another process involves the use of an endoscope and laser beam to see and break the stones into smaller fragments..
The prostate gland is found only in males. It sits below the bladder and wraps around the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). The prostate helps make semen.
A prostate or rectal ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to look at your prostate or your rectum.
Radical prostatectomy is surgery to remove the prostate gland. During the procedure, the seminal vesicles, nearby tissues, and often some pelvic lymph nodes are also removed
A renal angiogram is an imaging test to look at the blood vessels in your kidneys. Your doctor can use it to look at the ballooning of a blood vessel (aneurysm), narrowing of a blood vessel (stenosis), or blockages in a blood vessel. He or she can also see how well blood is flowing to your kidneys.
A renal venogram is an imaging test to look at the veins in and around your kidneys. Your doctor may also use the test to find out what is causing your high blood pressure (hypertension)
Retrograde cystography is an imaging test that uses X-rays to see the bladder. X-rays are made of the bladder after it has been filled with a contrast dye. The dye lets the radiologist see your organ or tissues more clearly.
A retrograde pyelogram is an imaging test that uses X-rays to look at your bladder, ureters, and kidneys. The ureters are the long tubes that connect your kidneys to your bladder. This test is usually done during a test called cystoscopy. It uses an endoscope, which is a long, flexible, lighted tube. During a cystoscopy, the healthcare provider can inject contrast dye directly into the ureters. The contrast helps parts of the body show up more clearly on an X-ray. The exam is performed under anesthesia.
The prostate gland is found only in males. It sits below the bladder and wraps around the urethra. The prostate helps make semen. Prostatectomy is surgery to remove the prostate gland.
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
A transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is surgery to remove parts of the prostate gland through the penis. No incisions are needed.
Urine Flow Test
A urine flow test calculates the speed of urine flow over time. It may be used to check how the bladder and sphincter are working. For this test, you will urinate into a special funnel that is connected to a measuring instrument. The instrument calculates the amount of urine, rate of flow in seconds, and the length of time until all urine has been passed. This information helps evaluate how well the lower urinary tract is working. It also helps figure out if there is a blockage of normal urine outflow.
Varicocele embolization is a type of medical procedure. It diverts blood away from an enlarged vein in your scrotum. Such a vein is called a varicocele. It can cause pain, infertility, and swelling.
