Urodynamics is a group of diagnostic procedures used to assess how the bladder and urethra are functioning with respect to storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic testing provides precise measurements using sophisticated instruments to assess the bladder’s ability to eliminate urine steadily and completely. The tests help physicians evaluate if the following:
- A patient is having trouble in starting a urine stream.
- The amount of effort put forth to maintain it.
- The stream is interrupted.
- There is residual urine left in the bladder after voiding.
