Abstract: Obtain a urine culture in all men with suspected urinary tract infection (UTI), to reliably diagnose an infection (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C). For further evaluation, ultrasonography with abdominal radiography appears at least as accurate as an intravenous pyelogram (IVP) for detecting urinary tract abnormalities such as hydronephrosis, stones, or outlet obstruction (SOR:C; single small poor-quality cohort study).
