Over a period of 2 years (1989-1991), combined urodynamic and ultrasonic investigations of the lower urinary tract were performed in 80 patients with spinal cord injuries. The main advantage of this procedure proved to be the lack of irradiation to both patient and investigator. Besides the real-time image of the bladder, bladder neck, prostate, pelvic floor and urethra, functional conclusions were possible, especially when urodynamic pressure curves were also considered.
