The blood may become apparent during urination or only upon microscopic examination. Rarely, blood may appear in the urine in the absence of genito . Significant haematuria occurs at readings of 1+ or above, and trace levels should be considered negative.1 Urine microscopy is not routinely required for confirming a dipstick diagnosis of haematuria.1 However, in some situations, after clinical evaluation, urine microscopy may be useful in helping to distinguish haematuriaFile Size: KB.

Hematuria can derive from the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate (in men), or urethra. Imaging can often be useful to determine the source.
