cystometry urodynamics preclinical
Basic and translational researchers wishing to utilise or improve rodent urodynamics for understanding lower urinary tract physiology and pathophysiology. Particularly important for those interested in therapeutic development and model comparisons.
This workshop will provide the physiological background and methodological considerations for urodynamic best practices in the preclinical setting. A better understanding of the underlying physiological principles will enable the participant to better chose the best assays for their purposes and the proper interpretation of the data. The strengths and weaknesses of various approaches will be explained by experts in the field, thereby enabling the participating basic and/or translational science researcher to maximize the quality of the information gathered from their preclinical urodynamic study designs and efforts. Proper interpretation of measurements and results will also be emphasized.
