Hello doc! My daughter is one and a half months 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 is safe for one month baby?

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