Urogynaecology and pelvic floor disorders are common conditions with increasing prevalence worldwide. The evaluation of these conditions include a detailed history with a thorough assessment of the lower urinary tract, bowel and sexual symptoms, a detailed physical examination as well as accurate objective information which among others may include imaging techniques.
