Uroscopy is a medieval medical practice that visually inspects a patient’s urine for pus, blood or other disease symptoms. The roots of uroscopy go back to ancient Egypt, Babylon, India, and were particularly emphasized in Byzantine medicine. Much of these methods are inaccurate or limited in diagnostic applications. However, it seems to be useful for determining such as turbidity of urine specimen due to bacterial infection or hemorrhage of urinary tract.
