Multi-channel urodynamics is an invasive diagnostic method used to assess bladder biomechanics. MRI-based CFD has shown high potential as a clinical tool primarily focused on cardiovascular flows. In this pilot study, we demonstrate MRI-based CFD as a tool to study urodynamics. Real-time MRI on one subject provided bladder wall surfaces at multiple time points during voiding. We developed a surface mapping algorithm that processes the bladder geometries before inputting them into a CFD simulation. Coupling MRI with CFD successfully visualized and quantified urine flow dynamics. This provides a non-invasive tool to investigate urodynamics in common urological conditions such as BPH/LUTS.
