Uroflowmetry is a simple, diagnostic screening procedure used to calculate the flow rate of urine over time. The test is noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) and may be used to assess bladder and sphincter function.
The research instructions are:
- prostate adenoma
- Stricture (narrowing of the urethra)
- neurogenic bladder
- overactive bladder
- prostate cancer
How is uroflowmetry performed?
A special device (uroflowmetry) is used. The patient urinates in a special vessel of the equipment, which analyzes the possible indicators and gets an accurate answer. If necessary, the diagnosis is repeated several times to obtain more objective data. It should be noted that the diagnosis should be made with a full bladder.
It is necessary to drink 0.5-1 liter of water 30-60 minutes before the examination.
