Summary

A video urodynamic study provides a comprehensive evaluation of bladder function. 

Expanded Overview

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.
