Evaluation of the incontinent female patient requires a thorough history, examination, and simple tests. When necessary, urodynamic testing includes a CMG and ALPP test. When the diagnosis remains uncertain or the clinical setting of incontinence is unusual, fluoroscopy will help the clinician to clarify the diagnosis. Characterization of stress incontinence requires definition of urethral mobility and of the ALPP, which is best achieved with fluoroscopy urodynamic testing.
