What is Hydrodistention?

Hydrodistention is a procedure done to fill the bladder with water or saline. Once the water is released from the bladder, the bladder is evaluated for signs of glomerulations or small bleeding spots noted on the bladder. This procedure is used to help with the diagnosis of interstitial cystitis.
