In brief: CT renal exam
A ct without and then with IV contrast may give an accurate evaluation of the kidneys and ureters.
Occasionally, small tumors, or stones may only be seen by retrograde pyelography.

In brief: IV pyelogram
However, it entails IV infusion of contrast which may have side effects on kidneys.
The retrograde study should not hurt the kidneys.
