Urinalysis (dipstick); this is a reliable test for haematuria if properly performed, but does not distinguish haematuria from haemoglobinuria and myoglobinuria.
Urine microscopy to confirm haematuria; to distinguish 'glomerular' from 'post-glomerular' (tubular and urinary tract) haematuria by the presence or absence of dysmorphic red cells; to differentiate haematuria from haemoglobinuria and myoglobinuria.
Urine culture, if indicated.
Urinary tract calculi
Urinary tract tumour, especially
Urine cytology. FNAB and lesion biopsy as appropriate.
