Jefferson University Hospitals

Tests & Treatments

  • Antegrade Pyelogram
    In order to assess the kidneys or ureters prior to surgery or to determine if there is a blockage, Jefferson physicians use this procedure.

  • Cystoscopy
    Our urologists use both conventional white light cystoscopy and the newer blue light cystoscopy to diagnose problems with the urinary tract, bladder and the urethra.

  • Transurethral Needle Ablation
    If you are suffering with urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), we can offer transurethral needle ablation as a potential treatment.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.

  • Uroflowmetry
    Jefferson physicians may conduct a uroflowmetry to detect the presence of problems with your lower urinary tract, such as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or cancer of the prostate or bladder.
