    How to Diagnose Horseshoe Kidney

    How to Diagnose Horseshoe KidneyHorseshoe kidney refers a condition in which two developed kidneys are connected to each other at the lower part and grow together. They form a “U” shape, so it is given the name “ horseshoe” kidney. How to diagnose whether you have a horseshoe kidney or not?

    Horseshoe kidney occurs during the fetal development and is a kind of congenital disorder affecting about 1 in 500~1000 people. Among them, children are prone to suffer from this kidney disease. And during the onset of illness, they may experience flank pain, bloody urine, chronic constipation and urinary system diseases and so on. All of them may be a sign of horseshoe kidney. However, these are not enough to diagnose this kidney disease. In order to further diagnose, your doctor will order one or more of the following diagnostic testes:

    Renal ultrasound

    It is an imaging technique that uses a computer and high-frequency sound waves to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. .Physicians are able to view internal organs as they function, and assess blood flow through various vessels.

    Voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG)

    This is a specific x-ray that examines the your child's urinary tract. A catheter (hollow tube) is placed in her urethra (tube that drains urine from the bladder to the outside of the body) and her bladder is filled with a liquid dye. X-ray images are taken as her bladder fills and empties. The images show if there is any reverse flow of urine into the ureters and kidneys.

    Intravenous pyelogram (IVP)

    This is an imaging technique that uses an x-ray to see the structures of the urinary tract. An intravenous contrast of dye is given so that the structures can be seen on film. This technique reveals the rate and path of your child's urine flow through the urinary tract.

    Blood and urine tests

    These help your doctor to know how well the kidneys are functioning.
