In brief: Unclear
If you mean intravenous pyelogram, then there is no specific preparation but need no heavy breakfast e.
g. Clear liquids like juice since I.V. Contrast could cause nausea. But if you mean a retrograde pyelogram, a contrast injected in the urethra and bladder upwards to kidneys by the urologist, then you need to be fasting after midnight to avoid vomiting and aspiration during procedure.
