Uroflowmetry

Uroflowmetry

Uroflowmetry is a simple test that electronically records the rate of urine flow. It is easily done in privacy at the hospital or clinic. This test helps your doctor check whether the flow of your urine is blocked.

You will urinate into a container, called a uroflowmeter (Figure 1).
