Pediatric Video Urodynamic Study
A video urodynamic study provides a comprehensive evaluation of bladder function.
Small catheters, to measure pressure, are placed in the bladder and rectum. Sticker-like electrodes are applied to your child’s bottom area to measure the sphincter function.
The bladder is slowly filled with a contrast liquid that shows up on X-rays. Periodic X-rays are taken to get a picture of the bladder. Once the bladder is full, your child will urinate and the rate of urine flow and degree of bladder emptying will be assessed.
