Pediatric Urodynamic Studies

When children are experiencing difficulties related to urinary, genital and kidney functions, they require specialized treatment. Children requiring diagnostic studies are referred to the urodynamic lab.

Urodynamic tests provide information about a child’s bladder and its ability to fill, store and empty urine. The results of this test help the urologist understand the child’s needs and determine the best plan of care.

The pediatric urology specialists at Providence implement some of the most technologically-advanced procedures for diagnosing and treating children.

We specialize in video-urodynamics, a new sophisticated test that improves the accuracy of diagnosis. This new technology, along with pelvic floor rehabilitation and medical therapy, has greatly improved the successful treatment of incontinence, giving the patient the confidence and freedom to return to an active lifestyle.

Urodynamic studies include:

  • Uroflowmetry
  • Electromyography of the sphincter (EMG)
  • Cystometrogram (CMG)/Micturition
