A uro-dynamic test is a comprehensive study to find out the reasons for bladder problems including stress and urge incontinence or difficulty passing urine. The exact tests are tailored to look into the type of problems you are experiencing.
A urodynamic test is designed to replicate your symptoms, and examine them and help to determine their cause.
During these tests, your bladder is slowly filled with sterile water. You will have two very fine tubes inserted into your urethra (the passage through which urine leaves your body) and a similar small tube placed in your back passage. These tubes are connected to a urodynamics machine to record the information. An x-ray or ultrasound of your bladder may also be needed.

Urodynamic tests are performed in an outpatient setting. It takes about 30 minutes for your doctor to perform the various tests. Immediately after the procedure we will usually let you know the results and discuss your proposed treatment plan with you.

The cost of a uro-dynamics test will depend on the exact tests you require and your Ramsay hospital of choice.
