Are Urodynamic Studies a Core or Ancillary Urologic Procedure?

Posted by Dr. Peter Steinberg on May 16, 2019 7:56:15 PM
In any urology practice, critical questions related to what services to offer, who will provide them and where the services will be performed are the foundation of practice management. When establishing or managing a practice, one decision you must make is whether urodynamics (UDS) is a foundational and core offering the practice will offer or an ancillary service. As with many things in urology, the answer is not straightforward and in reality, it is a little bit of both, though I tend to think of UDS as an ancillary service for most practices.

Core services urologists must offer include basic history and examination ability, cystoscopy and access to and interpretation of relevant lab and/or radiologic studies of the urinary tract. A urologist who cannot offer these basic services is really not practicing urology. UDS is an important test that urologists offer; however, a urology practice can exist without offering UDS and still thrive.

Urodynamics Interpretation: How to Do It Right

Posted by Clark Love on Feb 22, 2017 10:14:04 AM
Urodynamic testing is the best way to diagnose disorders of the lower urinary tract. However, many urodynamic technicians and doctors have never received formal training regarding the multiple tests and data interpretation.
In a 2002 survey1 of 192 North American urodynamics services, less than 20% of respondents reportedly received formal training.
While the techniques themselves are easy to master, urodynamics interpretation can be more difficult. How to do it the right way will be described here.
