Narrow-band imaging (NBI) is a novel optical method designed to enhance visual detection of bladder tumors over conventional white-light imaging (WLI) cystoscopy. Current experience with NBI cystoscop...
Bladder carcinoma is an important worldwide health problem. Both cystoscopy and urine cytology used in detecting bladder cancer suffer from drawbacks where cystoscopy is an invasive method and urine c...
Objectives. Normal and neoplastic human tissues have different electromagnetic properties. This study aimed to determine the diagnostic accuracy of noninvasive electromagnetic detection of bladder can...
Bladder cancer (BC) represents the fourth most common neoplasia in men and the ninth most common cancer in women, with a significant morbidity and mortality. Cystoscopy and voided urine cytology (invo...
The Role of Virtual Cystoscopy, after Multidetector Computed Tomography Imaging Reconstruction without the Use of Contrast Medium, in the Diagnosis and Evaluations of Bladder Tumors: Preliminary Study.
Introduction. Although conventional cystoscopy is considered to be the gold standard for diagnosis and follow-up of bladder tumors, it remains an invasive and costly procedure. With the advent of the ...
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 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.
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures such as cystoscopy may improve the ability to detect cancer and to determine the extent of disease. PURPOSE: Diagnostic trial to compare the effectiveness...
The Niris™ OCT Imaging System is a device used in the operating room together with cystoscopy in order to be able to see the condition of the bladder wall. The current implementation of ...
Urethral dilatation is a commonly undertaken intervention for a variety of urinary complaints including overactive bladder symptoms. There is however very little evidence for its efficacy...
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.
Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.
