Hello doc! My daughter is one and a half month old. She is having hydronephrosis plus hydroureter. The neurologist has recommended a test in which a tube will be passed inside her to check the actual problem. She is passing normal urine. An ultrasound concluded that the left side kidney is having a wrong replacement of its tube which connects the kidney with the bladder. That tube is going in the wrong direction. My question “Is this test safe for a one month old baby?

I am an adult nephrologist and do not see children or infants.  I suggest you consult with a pediatrician or a pediatric urologist.
