Diagnostic Techniques Offered at The Continence Center

  • Voiding Questionnaire and Diary: Provides pertinent information regarding behavioral characteristics and voiding patterns.
  • Urinalysis & Urine Culture: Determines any existing abnormalities such as urinary tract infections, blood in your urine and early detection of damage to your kidneys.
  • Radiological Studies: Identifies the presence of abnormalities by X-raying the genitourinary tract.
  • Uroflow: Measures the flow of the urine stream and helps assess the ability of the bladder to empty.
  • Bladder Scan: Non-invasive ultrasound test that assesses the ability of the bladder to empty.
  • Cystoscopy: Utilization of a small telescope to look inside the bladder. This is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure which lasts less than five minutes. It allows us to assess your bladder for stones, tumors, signs of obstruction or other abnormalities that may cause your symptoms.
  • Urodynamics: An outpatient procedure which involves placing a small catheter into the bladder and another catheter into the rectum. Bladder pressure is measured as the bladder is filled and emptied. This minimally invasive test helps to determine the cause of your symptoms and allows us to recommend the appropriate therapy for each individual. We offer state-of-the-art equipment with the highest diagnostic accuracy.

Facts About Urinary Incontinence

  • Urinary incontinence is due to an involuntary loss of urine, which varies from occasional leakage to complete lack of control.
  • A cough, a sneeze or even a little laugh is all it takes to trigger leakage in some people.
  • Urgency, frequency of urination, and not getting to the bathroom on time are associated with it.
  • Although it is common as one gets older, it occurs in both men and women of all ages.
  • Approximately 1 out of every 6 women ages 45 and older lives with some degree of urinary incontinence.
