Cystoscopy, prostate biopsy, bladder scan and more special urologic diagnostic services

The Urology Department at Wayne State University Physician Group offers special urologic diagnostic services.

Our special urologic diagnostic services include:

  • Urodynamic studies– pressure and volume measurements of the urinary bladder and lower urinary tract.
  • Transurethral needle ablation of the prostate (PROSTIVA/TUNA) – minimally invasive office-based procedure that destroys excess prostate tissue, which may improve urination.
  • Cystoscopy – use of a scope (cystoscope) to examine the bladder and prostate.
  • Prostate biopsy– test to remove small samples of prostate tissue to be examined under a microscope.
  • Penile Doppler– used in the evaluation of erectile dysfunction by using ultrasound to measure blood flow to the penis.
  • Bladder scan– ultrasound of the bladder to aid in the diagnosis of common urological conditions
  • Post void residual and urine flow rate– to determine the flow rate of urine during voiding and the residual urine in the bladder using ultrasound.
