Nephrostogram, also known as antegrade pyelogram, is a special x-ray procedure that fluoroscopically evaluates the upper collecting system by introducing water-soluble contrast through the nephrostomy catheter.
Nephrostogram can be useful to determine tube position or assess residual stones in the upper collecting system.
