Professor Piotr Radziszewski (specialist in urology, in the course of specialization in clinical oncology), honorary doctorate of the Charles Davilli University, is the Head of the Urology Clinic of the Medical University of Warsaw, he has been involved in international scientific research for many years. Co-founder of the International Society for the Study of Urinary Incontinence, a member of the Board of the International Society for Continuity, a member of the Scientific Committee of the European Urological Association.

The Professor's most important clinical and scientific achievements are:
The test is performed in a semi-supine position on the urological-gynecological chair. The doctor inserts a catheter into the bladder, which serves to fill the bladder with saline and to record pressure changes in the bladder. At the same time, the pressure and function of the sphincter muscles in the rectum are also measured by other catheter. Next the patient urinates to a special device that allows to assess the urine flow, flow time and residual urine. Also bladder function and the contractility force are evaluated. During a 40-minute examination, the patient may experience slight discomfort. The patient must be properly prepared for urodynamic examination, have sterile urine culture, and should pass the stool on the day of the examination. It is necessary to bring all previous tests results and a list of currently and previously taken medicines.
