Urinary Tract Infection Diagnosis

Ultrasound
If you have chronic urinary tract infections, your doctor also may recommend an ultrasound exam. An ultrasound is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image.
Cystoscopy
Another useful test in diagnosing a urinary tract infection is a cystoscopy. A cystoscope is an instrument made out of a hollow tube with several lenses and a light source. A cystoscope allows the doctor to see inside the bladder from the urethra.
