Uroflowmetry procedure measure of the quantity of urine excreted in a specified period of time which is also called as Urine flow rate.
Uroflowmetry is a simple, non invasive diagnostic screening procedure used to calculate the amount of urine (volume), flow rate in seconds, and length of time until completion of the void.
Continuous recording of urine flow by means of a device consisting of a cylinder placed on a transducer that weighs the urine entering thecylinder during voiding and plots the flow rate on a time scale.
Common periods of time used include "minute" and "seconds."
