According to AUA guidelines, clinicians should perform a postvoid residual assessment before LUTS intervention. Uroflowmetry should be considered before intervention but is not required. Ultrasonography is not typically part of the initial evaluation; however, assessment of the prostate size and shape via transrectal or abdominal ultrasonography, cystoscopy, or cross-sectional imaging may be considered before intervention for LUTS. Pressure flow studies should be considered when diagnostic uncertainty exists.
