Pediatric Video Urodynamic Study (VUDS)

What is Pediatric Video Urodynamic Study (VUDS)?

A video urodynamic study (VUDS) provides a comprehensive evaluation of bladder function. The study helps our team understand the way your child's bladder fills and empties.

What can I expect during a Pediatric Video Urodynamic Study (VUDS)?

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.
