Modeling of the micturition with computational fluid dynamics using video-urodynamics recordings

Brief description of study

This is a prospective, observational study, in which we will collect the radiograph images, and the pressure and flow data obtained during video-urodynamics studies of up to 10 male patients who must undergo this examination for a urologic condition as deemed by their urologists.

We will then use the anatomic data of the radiograph images and the pressure and flow rate values to model numerically the low urinary tract during the micturition and to simulate the flow of urine during the micturition in several anatomical conformations. Patients will undergo a video-urodynamic study including a pressure-flow study and a per-mictionnal urethrography as part of the standard care for the assessment of voiding dysfunction between August 15th and October 31st, 2023, at NYU Langone Health.
