What tests can be used to determine if a physical problem is causing bed-wetting?

ANSWER

An ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder may be performed if a physical problem is suspected.

Children whose bed-wetting is associated with other conditions, such as a urinary tract infection, may be referred to a specialist in urology (urologist) for further evaluation.

Immaturity of a child's bladder is a common cause of bed-wetting.
