Uroflowmetry measures how much urine comes out, and how fast. It is done in two-parts. Your doctor may suggest this test if you have trouble urinating, or have a slow stream.

By measuring the average and top rates of urine flow, this test can show a blockage such as an enlarged prostate. You will be asked to arrive with a full bladder for best test results.
