Researchers in the UK have found that the shape of a man's urine stream can be analyzed for specific patterns that can be used to predict the maximum flow rate, a value that in turn can be used to diagnose developing urinary problems--including those associated with the prostate. This shape is caused by the surface tension in the urine and the urethra's elliptical shape, the researchers say, and in their tests men were able to self-evaluate their arcs to determine whether their flow rates were indicative of some kind of urinary problem. Considering the majority of men in their 60s and 70s tend to experience some kind of urinary symptom that may be caused by an enlarged prostate, a non-invasive, self-evaluation could go a long way toward catching potentially life-threatening prostate problems early.
Well, well, in our baby years were got to sink the cheerio,lol.
Now in our elderly years, we can watch for flow patterns. Too bad, PoPSCi could not offer a diagnostic flow chart for accurate interpretations; else it’s all pretty much a crap shoot. Oh, never mind, that another orifice and another hole topic later for PoPSCi too.:)
By PoPSCI, via a future article, everything you wanted to know about a dysfunctional sphincter.
Very good, lol, I could mention the names of some people I used to work with.
Ya know, a rather bizarre imagine came to mind. How did this medical science researches do R&D on this project?
I mean, did they have like a city of old guys come in their office and pee in a cup and video it! Was there a comparison data base study developed with the results?
Gee wiz, no pun intended, I hope these videos are not on youtube, eek!
A doctor in medical science discovers a cure to the prostate problem and proclaims out to the lab:
“Urethra! I've found it!". ;)
