IVP (intravenous pyelogram). An IVP is an enhanced x-ray image in which a contrast material (dye) is used to examine the anatomy and function of the kidneys, ureters, and urinary bladder. In this case, it was performed because of a suspected rupture of the urinary bladder. The kidneys are on either side of the spine in the top of the image. They connect to the urinary bladder via the ureters which are the skinny little tubes running vertically in this image. The yellowish-blue structure near the bottom of the image in the middle is the urinary bladder.
