uroflowmetry

 [u″ro-flo´met-re]
the graphic representation of urinary flow, expressed as cubic centimeters per second; called also flow study and urinary flow study.

uroflowmetry

[yoo͡r′′ōflō′mətrē]
continuous recording of urine flow by means of a device consisting of a cylinder placed on a transducer that weighs the urine entering the cylinder during voiding and plots the flow rate on a time scale. Also called flow study.

uroflowmetry

(ū″rō-flō′mĕ-trē)
Timed measurement of the rate of urination. Uroflowmetry is used to diagnose conditions that result in slow urinary output, e.g., bladder outlet obstruction resulting from enlargement of the prostate gland. The maximal volume of urinary flow over time is called the Qmax. A Qmax of less than 10 ml of urine/second is an indication of significantly reduced urinary output.
