Translating the complex language used by doctors to describe the anatomy and physiology of the lower urinary tract for patients contemplating therapy for bladder disorders can be difficult. Patient Pictures - Bladder Disorders aims to overcome this problem by providing illustrations and text to help healthcare professionals present the issues in a way that patients can easily understand. It is not intended to be a comprehensive work for the doctor or patient, but a communication tool to enhance the interaction between the two.
