Urography, Excretory


(also called descending urography), roentgen examination of the kidneys and urinary tract after injection of an X-ray contrast medium such as methiodal sodium, which is excreted by the kidneys. The method makes it possible to determine the condition of the kidneys and urinary tract and is used to detect nephrolithiasis, renal tuberculosis, and other diseases.
