Multiple Sclerosis: Urinary Tract Tests

Topic Overview

Bladder and urination problems are common in people who have multiple sclerosis (MS). When a new problem develops, tests may be done to make sure that a condition other than MS is not causing the problem and to decide on the best treatment.

The following are tests commonly used to evaluate problems with the urinary tract:

Some of these tests involve the insertion of a thin flexible tube (catheter) into the urethra; injection of a contrast medium, which shows up on X-rays; or injection of material that has low-level radioactivity.
