Summary

Data quality and documentation of variance are key for urodynamics studies to be valid, and symptoms must be reproduced to be able to make a diagnosis. Accurate reporting requires knowledge of pathophysiological parameters and the ability to detect artefacts. If inaccuracies are discovered, they should be corrected contemporaneously. Spurious and inaccurate observations are known as artefacts. The Oxford dictionary defines artefacts as something observed in a scientific investigation or experiment that is not naturally present but occurs as a result of the preparative or investigative procedure.’
