Urine dysmorphic RBC test

Can urine dysmorphic RBC test confirm that blood in urine is from renal or urethral region?
I had 10-12 cells/hpf in urine and when gave sample for the above test 4 days later it was 1-2 cells/hpf. So the test came out to be negative. It was a random sample. Don't know if the sample was misleading.

Dysmorphic RBC's almost confirm that they are from the kidney. The overall context is also important as opposed to looking at a test result in isolation. Take care.
