Usually: Urine cytology is a one time test, where you send a sample immediately to the cytology/pathology lab without having to collect 24 hours worth of urine.

Ketones are: not important, as ketones concentrate in the urine and may go up just due to fasting, The hematuria needs to be followed and evaluation continued.
