What is urodynamics useful for, related to urology doctors?

Bladder function.

Open-uri20120805-32187-j6hhbx
Urodynamics measures pressures in the bladder as it is filled and as you void. This can show how well the bladder expands as it fills, if it is abnormally active, if it squeezes with sufficient strength, and if it empties efficiently. It can also test continent and sphincter function. Video is sometimes used to see if any anatomic defects exist.
