Haematuria urine test. A urine test (urinanalysis) is conducted with a dipstick, to confirm the dis- order of haematuria. The strip of paper coloured with markers, is placed into a vial of urine. This test relies on a colour change in the strip (which for haematuria turns blue). Haematuria is the term for red blood cells in the urine. Here, blood is visible in the red colour of the urine. Almost any disorder of the urinary tract can cause haema- turia: urinary tract infection, prostatitis in men, cysts or kidney tumours, bladder tumours or stones. If the dipstick test is not helpful in determining the cause, urography or ultrasound scanning or CT scanning may be necessary.
