Urinalysis, also referred to as a routine urine test, is used to check for abnormalities in the urine. There are a number of diseases and conditions which can result in abnormalities in the urine and can often be detected through physical, chemical, and microscopic examination.
Urinalysis may be performed to detect a urinary tract infection (UTI), protein in the urine or blood in the urine. Urinalysis may be performed as part of a regular physical examination to screen for early signs of disease. In patients who have kidney disease or diabetes, urine tests are used to monitor the condition.
Urinalysis tests are available in all locations, Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, Kingston, Rhinebeck, and Newburgh.
