Often, health care providers find horseshoe kidneys while treating other conditions. A health care provider may also find them when looking for the cause of symptoms mentioned earlier. These imaging tests could help your health care provider find a horseshoe kidney:
- Intravenous pyelogram (IVP)
- Voiding Cystourethrogram (VCUG)
- Radionuclide Scan
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Your health care provider may also order blood tests to see how well the kidney(s) are working.
