Our expert says:
What happens with an IVP is that they inject a radio-opaque liquid into your veins, that is excreted by the kidneys - so over a period of an hour or two you see an exact picture of what is happening in the kidneys and how well the kidneys are working to flush this out. It won't show anything outside the kidney system. See http://www.radiologyinfo.org/en/info.cfm?pg=ivp&bhcp=1
If the IVP is clear, the doctor may want to do an internal examination with a thin tube like camera under anesthetic ( cystoscopy)
