Getting the Right Treatment for Your Bladder Problem Starts With Having the Right Tests.

 


What Is A Urodynamic Study?

 A Urodynamic Study is actually a SERIES of tests designed to thoroughly evaluate bladder and urethral function. In order to understand every detail of your bladder problem, these tests record very precise scientific data on your bladder’s ability to store and empty urine.

Why Do I Need A Urodynamic Study?

 

Total Care for Women conducts these studies to evaluate leaking urine, diffi culty emptying the bladder, frequent urination, recurrent infections, blood in the urine and loss of bladder support.


What Can I Expect?

Depending on your situation and our diagnostic needs, you may have one or more of these individual tests that comprise a Urodynamic Study:

  • Uroflowmetry - Measures how well you emptyyour bladder.
  • Cystometry – Evaluates bladder storage.
  • Urethral Pressure Study – Determines how well the urethra closes.
  • Electromyography – Assesses the muscle behaviors involved in urination.
  • Pressure Flow Study – Helps us separate pressure problems from muscle dysfunction.
