Approximately 21 million patients visit urology clinics nationally, every year. The most common cause of these visits to urologists are bladder retention, which can cause a range of complications. In this ebook, we’ll dive into bladder retention causes and complications, and how leveraging ultrasound can narrow the differential diagnoses early on to guide decision-making for proper treatment.

We’ll cover:

  • Complications that may result through bladder retention, what the current planned course of treatment is and the pros/cons
  • How bladder ultrasound can support diagnostic precision by measuring bladder volume and aid in narrowing down provisional diagnosis
  • The role point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) can play in urology clinics to transform standard of patient care
