Review of Techniques to Evaluate Micturitional Performance. Promises of 1971 Revisited

  • N. R. Zinner
Conference paper

Abstract

It will be difficult to reconstruct the mood and experience of the marvellous meeting in Aachen held in 1971 but I will try to bring some of the flavor to the reader, and to review subsequent events with a view towards examining what progress has occurred since that time.
