A nephrostogram study looks at your child’s nephrostomy tube, which drains urine from the kidney into a special bag. It uses contrast liquid, which shows up well on x-rays, inserted into the nephrostomy. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about nephrostogram studies, what is involved and what to expect when your child has one.
