Urodynamics (UDS) is the current gold standard investigation for explaining pathology in lower urinary tract dysfunction.
The role of UDS is to answer a urodynamic question based on reproducing the patient’s symptoms. Despite the introduction of several standardization documents on terminology and methodology for performing UDS and the standard of equipment required, there remains no standardization on how to report and therefore how to interpret UDS findings. The lack of guidance in this specific area may undermine the value of this extremely important tool in the patient evaluation. The aim of this article is to propose a standardized proforma and checklist for the reporting of UDS studies; the main text discusses the rationale for the proforma.
