Videocystometrography (VCMG) is the most complex study of urinary tract function, combining as it does conventional pressure flow urodynamics with simultaneous imaging of the lower urinary tract. The commonest indications include the assessment of the neurogenic bladder, urinary incontinence and patients who have undergone reconstruction of the lower urinary tract. Videourodynamic studies should only be performed by trained clinicians who are able to both undertake and to interrogate the study so as to be certain that the study reflects the patient symptoms as closely as possible.
