From bladder scans to cystoscopy, we find the root issue then help you treat it.

We find the root cause

Diagnostics Provided.

You are not alone, the team here at London Bladder Clinic will be with you every step of the way. We are phasing in the following diagnostics:


Diagnostics Explained.

From a urine sample you provide us we can test it for any evidence of blood, protein and infection. It can also provide information such as bilirubin and acidity levels.
Urinary Flow Rate

Our specialist team will be able to assess your urinary function through a non-invasive urodynamics test which involves you passing urine into a device that measures electronically how fast the urine is expelled.

Post-Void Bladder Scan

After you have passed urine an assessment on how well you have emptied your bladder, and the performance of the urinary flow dynamic is carried out by using an ultrasound scan on the bladder. Depending on why the test has been carried out the findings will be discussed with you and a management plan clearly outlined for you.


This is a very common tool used to evaluate bladder function, and currently represents the best standard of assessment. Our specialist team offer this procedure in a relaxed environment by filling your bladder artificially to measure how your bladder responds to filling. You will be asked to normally attend this procedure with a comfortably full bladder to allow us to carry out a flow rate test and urinalysis prior to the urodynamics. You will be dressed in a gown and will be sat on a commode. The concept is focused on re-enacting your symptoms and our team will support you through this process.

Our team will pass a small lubricated catheter into your urethra (waterpipe), a second catheter is then placed into your rectum. Once all the lines are placed, they are secured, and the bladder is slowly filled with a solution through the catheter. During the test you will be asked to cough, and you will be asked to report when you have the desire to pass urine. Once you feel like you have a full bladder you will be asked to pass urine with the lines in place will into a flow rate machine again. After the test you can freshen up and get changed. Your results will be discussed with you in the clinic and a management plan clearly outlined for you.

Bladder Cystoscopy

A thorough endoscopic (internal) camera test of your bladder and urethra (waterpipe). We administer a lubricating anaesthetic jelly to numb the area. A thin flexible camera is theninserted into your urethra to allow us to look inside the bladder. This is usually done with you awake and is well tolerated with only mild discomfort. We can then look for any changes in your bladder and take biopsies if necessary.

Ultrasound scanning

A sonographic, non-invasive diagnostic test to visualise the urinary tract including kidneys, bladder and prostate. This allows us to assess whether there are any structural issues that may be causing your symptoms.
