Can CT Virtual Cystoscopy Replace Conventional Cystoscopy in Early Detection of Bladder Cancer?

Aim. To correlate findings of conventional cystoscopy with CT virtual cystoscopy (CTVC) in detecting bladder tumors and to evaluate accuracy of virtual cystoscopy in early detection of bladder cancer....

Computed tomography-virtual cystoscopy in the evaluation of a bladder mass: Could it replace standard conventional cystoscopy?

To determine the role of computed tomography-virtual cystoscopy (CT-VC) in the detection and evaluation of bladder cancer, compared to standard conventional cystoscopy (CC).

3D detection and extraction of bladder tumors via MR virtual cystoscopy.

This paper proposes a pipeline for the detection and extraction of 3D regions of bladder tumors via MR virtual cystoscopy.

Deceptive Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer Recurrence With Benign Biopsy Foci After Bladder Sparing Treatment.

Most of recurrent bladder carcinoma after partial cystectomy did not cause diagnostic difficulties for urologists, because of the appearance of typical papillary in ultrasonography or cystoscopy, and ...

A comparison of NBI and WLI cystoscopy in detecting non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer: A prospective, randomized and multi-center study.

Several single-center studies have investigated whether narrow-band imaging (NBI) cystoscopy is more effective in detecting primary and recurrent non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) compared wi...

Clinical Trials [6039 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

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.

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...

Cystoscopy and Hexyl 5-Aminolevulinate in Detecting Carcinoma In Situ in Patients With Bladder Cancer

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...

Bladder Cancer Imaging Study-OCT Imaging to Stage Bladder Tumors

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 ...

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.

Bladder Cancer
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
