The doctors at Century Medical and Dental Center have many diagnostic testing techniques at their fingertips. That’s due to the practice encompassing a multi-disciplinary staff of specialists. Nearly every branch of medicine is represented. Urodynamics is one example of the state-of-the-art diagnostic tools available. A completely safe procedure, it measures your bladder’s functioning to look for abnormalities. Call today to meet with a urinary expert.

Urodynamics is a set of diagnostic medical tests that checks your lower urinary tract functions. Your bladder, sphincters and urethra are measured to see how much urine you can hold and what happens when you relieve yourself. The tests also look closely at your bladder functions to see if you have any problems like blockages or leaks.

Both men and women can get the bladder pressure test. Your doctor from Century Medical and Dental Center in Brooklyn recommends urodynamic testing along with other diagnostic tests, such as:

What a Urodynamic Test Detects

Urodynamic testing is used for diagnostics: to confirm a diagnosis or rule out a condition. Most often, you take this test when you’re suffering from urinary incontinence. Some of the other medical conditions that require the bladder test for diagnostic purposes include:

Which Urodynamic Testing You Need

Several tests come under the umbrella of urodynamics. Your doctor in Brooklyn chooses the most appropriate test according to your symptoms and medical diagnosis. The test lasts about 15 to 30 minutes. The types of urodynamic testing available to you include:

  • Uroflowmetry This test measures the speed and volume of your urine output.
  • Postvoid residual measurement. This is a urodynamic test that checks the amount of urine still remaining in your bladder after you have urinated.
  • Cystometric test. This useful test measures how much urine is in the bladder, how much pressure builds up in the bladder as you urinate and how full the bladder is before you get the urge to urinate.
  • Leak point pressure measurement. This test analyses at what point the pressure is so high that leakage happens during the cystometric test.
  • Pressure flow study. This measures the bladder pressure that you need to urinate. It also checks the flow rate at a given pressure.
  • Electromyography. This test uses special sensors to monitor the electrical activity of the muscles and nerves in and around the bladder and the sphincters. You mostly need this test if your doctor suspects that nerve or muscle damage is the cause for the lower urinary tract not functioning properly.
  • Video urodynamic tests. These tests use technology to take pictures and videos of your bladder while it fills up and while you relieve yourself. For an x-ray, your bladder is filled with a special fluid that shows more prominently. For an ultrasound, your bladder is filled with warm water.
