Residual Value

In accounting, an estimate of the value of an asset at the end of its depreciation. For example, a firm's computer depreciates each year. When it breaks down or becomes obsolete, it has a residual value; it is calculated by the best guess of the net cash inflow when it is sold at the end of its life. It will never be above the blue book value.

In price regulated industries, the residual value may be a negative value because it includes the net cash outflow in removing the asset from where it was used. For example, nuclear energy plants must store the nuclear waste at the end of their useful life. This cost is a contributing factor in the residual value. It is also called the salvage value or scrap value. See also: Absolute Physical Life, Obsolescence.


A fee paid to an actor or other performer for a rerun of a program in which he/she was part of the cast. An advertiser or a broadcaster may pay the fee, which is set in a union contract. It is also called a residual fee.

Residual urine of [greater than or equal to]150 ml was taken as a cutoff value for postpartum urinary retention (PPUR) as 92.3% of our study population had RU < 150 ml.
Another reason of urinary tract infection is residual urine in patients with a diagnosis of urination disorder.
Due to non-availability of TRUS in our centre, only ultrasound abdomen for prostate size, consistency and residual urine was done.
The dependent variable was the value of bladder outlet obstruction index >4o (urodynamic obstruction), while independent variables were: prostate volume, Qmax, mean voided volume, BOON, age, International Prostate Symptom Score and residual urine. It was shown that the most significant variable determining obstruction was BOON (p=0.0006, OR=1.04), followed by Qmax (p=0.009, OR=0.9), with log likelihood 73.6, (p<0.0001).

Presence and volume of residual urine was defined right after the urination act.
Score, QoL, urination parameters, including voiding parameters (rate of urine flow, average flow, total volume and post-void residual urine volume) and lower total PSA level on day 180 of the study.
Residual urine decreased from 332 to 31 milliliters, and urinary-tract infections became negligible.
The residual urine samples from routine pregnancy testing were evaluated for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and T.
In addition, non-oliguric patients typically had fewer complications by avoiding volume overload and subsequent pulmonary edema as some residual urine output remained.
Another possibility to explain the presence of a false negative in a single steer could be the interference of residual urine produced before the development of metabolic acidosis increasing the urine pH thereafter.
After the 1st fractionation step, residual urine was removed, and the procedure was repeated with a 2nd urine fraction (60 [micro]L maximum).
