Abstract:In this thesis, the urodynamic subject is first introduced, by giving a brief overview of the anatomy and physiology of the lower urinary tract. This is followed by an overview of the normal urodynamic procedure and the history of the urodynamic quantification and classification of the urethral resistance, concluded with the overall aim to this thesis. Next, two articles will be included, the first one discussing several existing measures for the quantification of urethral resistance and the second one clarifying the clinical relevance of subclassification of bladder outflow obstruction. Those articles will be followed by three abstracts which are accepted for a short oral at the International Continence Society annual congress in September. The first two consist of a short summary of the two articles included in this thesis. The last one considers the use of unsupervised machine learning for distinguishing several types of bladder outflow obstruction. The thesis will conclude with a further outlook on research in the field of urodynamics.
