Urodynamics (bladder pressure measurement)

A urodynamic test assesses the bladder's function and efficiency of storing and releasing urine. This can reveal important information before planned urological treatments and operations.

An extensive urodynamic analysis can take up to 1.5 hours. A narrow measuring catheter is inserted into the urethra and the rectum, and the bladder is filled with a mixture of saline and contrast medium. Measuring probes register the reaction of the bladder, the strength of the bladder muscles, and the coordination of muscle-nerve-activity in both the storing and releasing phase. The results can provide information vital to determining the correct diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Examinations are done on an outpatient basis.
