Urodynamic study involves the introduction of two probes into the bladder and rectum to make precise measurements inside the patient’s body. Based on these measurements, it is possible to assess, among other things, the electrical activity of the muscles and measure the pressure inside the bladder. During this diagnostic procedure, measurements of the duration of flow and the volume of residual urine in the bladder are performed. The test is painless and usually takes approximately 40 minutes.
