Background: The International Bladder Cancer Group (IBCG) recently proposed a new definition of disease progression in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC), including change in T-stage, change t...

Limited Funds for Bladder Cancer Research and What Can We Do About It.

Bladder cancer is frequent, has a high mortality, is expensive and treatment options have not improved over a long time. One of the most important reasons for the relative lack of improvement in treat...

Comparison of Guidelines on Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (EAU, CUA, AUA, NCCN, NICE).

Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) represents a considerably diverse patient group and the management of this complex disease is debatable. A number of panels from Europe and North America hav...

Study to Improve Detection and Early Recurrence Rate in Bladder Cancer Patients Using Hexvix Fluorescence Cystoscopy

The purpose of this study is to document the additional detection of papillary bladder cancer and the reduced early recurrence due to the improved detection and resection of these tumors a...

Hexvix Cystoscopy for Detection of Bladder Cancer

Hexvix is a photo-dynamic agent which fluoresces and is taken by tumor tissue in the bladder. When viewed under blue light cystoscopy, tumor areas appear red.

The Efficacy of the Bladder EpiCheck for Detection of Recurrent Urothelial Cell Carcinoma

Clinical trial to determine the efficacy (sensitivity and specificity) of the Bladder EpiCheck test compared to the gold standard cystoscopy and pathology in patients under monitoring for ...

A Study of Blue Light Cystoscopy With Cysview and White Light Cystoscopy in the Detection of Bladder Cancer

The purpose of this study is to investigate if blue light cystoscopy with Cysview improves detection of tumors in patients with bladder cancer during surveillance cystoscopy, using the KAR...

Validation of Endoscopic Bimodal Imager for the Bladder Cancer Detection

This study evaluates the therapeutic value of: (i) simultaneous endoscopic visualization of the inner bladder using white light and blue light excitations and (ii) high resolution panorami...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the urinary bladder.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Method to determine the occurrence of OVULATION by direct or indirect means. Indirect methods examine the effects of PROGESTERONE on cervical mucus (CERVIX MUCUS), or basal body temperature. Direct ovulation detection, generally used in fertility treatment, involves analyses of circulating hormones in blood and ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
