Urinalysis w/ Reflex to Culture
Symptoms like frequent and painful urination,
cloudy or bloody urine, and lower abdominal discomfort often prompt a Urine
Culture, a medical test that identifies and grows bacteria or pathogens found
in a urine sample. This test is crucial for diagnosing urinary tract infections
(UTIs) accurately and determining the most effective antibiotics for treatment
based on the specific bacteria causing the infection. It aids healthcare
providers in effectively managing UTIs.
