Abstract

Stress Urinary Incontinence is a common form of women urinary incontinence and has some surgical therapeutic methods. The quality of surgery merely depends on the quality of diagnosis. Before deciding a surgery type, urodynamic testing is applied. Since urodynamic testing is invasive, and difficult to apply, many subjects do not seek therapy. A non-invasive method can encourage more subjects for searching a remedy. At this point, Doppler ultrasound can be a good choice. In this study, we have demonstrated that the blood flow characteristics of healthy subjects and intrinsic sphincter deficiency type stress urinary incontinence subjects have different characteristics and can be classified by using Doppler ultrasound recording.
