CT urogram: Ct urogram is a exam perform to evaluate to urinary tract (kidneys, ureters and bladder) for a cause of hemturia. The exam is performed before and after the administration of iodinated contrast. Most cases of hemturia have no findings on this exam. The most common finding is a kidney stone.

CT scan of kidneys: This is a specialized test of the kidneys, ureters and bladder to look at their function and appearance. The ct scan is repeated several times after the injection of xray contrast to watch the passage of contrast through the system.

Urinary tract CT: A ct urogram is a ct scan focused for the urinary tract although the entire abdomen and pelvis will be imaged. There are usually 3 phases to this - first no contrast (this checks for stones and whether there is any blockage), next contrast injected, then delayed images to see contrast in the ureters and entering the bladder. This also checks for blockages and/or tumors.
