Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and changes in bladder function occur frequently as individuals age, requiring a non-invasive method of imaging the bladder. This study utilized 3D MRI acquisition on both an in vitro bladder model and an in vivo human subject to analyze deformation patterns during the bladder voiding process and validated results with high-speed optical imaging. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses were conducted. This study serves to discover novel methods of in vivo MRI bladder imaging during the voiding process.
