Urodynamic studies are designed to show how your bladder is working.

  • Fluid is run into your bladder and the pressure response to filling and emptying your bladder are measured using a small catheter (tube)
  • Urodynamic studies are sometimes combined with X-ray screening to look in more detail at the way your bladder expands and contracts
  • Urodynamic studies may not always provide an explanation for your urinary symptoms
  • The commonest complication is infection in your urine
