The aim of the thesis "Bladder dysfunction in the context of the bladder-brain connection" written by Ilse Groenendijk, was to investigate potential diagnostic tools in the field of functional urology.
The first aim was to define the brain areas involved in LUT control in healthy individuals and to investigate the clinical applicability of dynamic brain imaging as a diagnostic tool of functional bladder disorders in individuals.
The second aim was to evaluate and improve traditional and patient reported outcome measurements in the field of functional urology.
