  • Uroflowmetry: It is a test performed to measure the volume of urine released from the body with the speed with its released and duration it takes to come out of the body.
  • Lithotripsy: It is a therapeutic procedure that involves breaking up of stones in the kidney using shock waves.

  • MR- Renal Angio: It is done in renal denervation (ablation) processes as well as in hypertensive patients for renal artery stenosis.
  • MR-Urography: It is a radiation-free examination that utilizes magnetic waves to produce comprehensive images of the kidneys, ureters, and bladder.
  • CO2 Renal Angiogram: CO2 has developed into a secure and helpful vascular imaging contrast agent. It is the only established secure contrast agent in patients with renal failure and iodine contrast medium hypersensitivity.
  • DMSA (Dimercaptosuccinic Acid) Scan: It is a Static Renal Scan that provides information about the size, shape, and position of the kidneys, and whether there are any scars on the kidneys from previous infections.
  • Renal DTPA (Diethylene Triamine Pentaacetic Acid) Scan/ Renogram: It is a Dynamic Renal Scan which provides investigation about the blood flow to the kidneys and its functioning.
  • Plain KUB (Kidney, Ureter, and Bladder) X-ray: Provides information regarding any radio-opaque shadow within the KUB
