Urethral stricture diagnosis is primarily by flexible endoscopy. The initial endoscopy can identify the number of, diameter of and the rigidity of any identified strictures. Previously diagnosis was primarily by radiological means prompted by clinical suspicion. It is possible to definitively treat a stricture by endoscopic means by performing a Direct Visual Internal Urethrotomy, using an optical urethrotome.
