Managing patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) begins with a differential diagnosis; and quantifying BPH / LUTS via the AUA symptom index. Evaluating symptoms such as incomplete emptying, straining, and stop-start urination can be achieved with a combination of portable ultrasound bladder volume measurement and a uroflow exam. This combination also may be useful to monitor the progress of pharmacotherapy.
Urinary retention, the inability or failure to empty the bladder completely, can be acute or chronic. Acute urinary retention is the complete inability to void, which may take hours to occur. The bladder must be drained or emptied immediately or it can lead to acute renal failure or bladder rupture.
Chronic urinary retention is the ongoing inability to void, which usually takes months to develop. The bladder becomes used to being stretched so that residents adapt to the condition and may not be aware of it.
Use of a BladderScan instrument to accurately measure a resident's bladder volume is quick and easy. Measurements can be done by staff and no sonographer is required. Exam results can be printed for physician review or exported to an EHR system.

The FloPoint Elite Uroflow System measures and records a patient’s voiding pattern, allowing physicians to quickly assess the mechanics of urinary flow.
This in turn can help diagnose and treat the underlying urinary abnormalities. Exam results can be printed for physician review or exported to an EHR system.
New ScanPoint® image management technology gives healthcare professionals a comprehensive view of individual patient exam results from multiple ScanPoint-enabled instruments, allowing quick and easy tracking of treatment progress.
ScanPoint technology provides HIPAA-compliant online storage of patient records and secure EHR connectivity, enabling integration of exam data into patient health records.It also generates PDFs of exam records in multiple formats for patient records.
