What Are Urodynamics?
Urodynamics is a set of tests that measure lower urinary tract function. The aim of testing is to reproduce voiding patterns to identify any underlying problem. “Uro” refers to urine and “dynamics” refers to a continuous activity. This means that “urodynamics” is a continuing test, not just a single picture like in a chest X-ray. Through this way of testing, the doctor is able to obtain a great deal of information about the disease.
Urodynamic testing is a procedure that looks at how well the bladder, sphincter, and urethra are storing and releasing urine.
