The aim of this study was to investigate which post-contrast phase(s) in a four-phase CT urography protocol is (are) most suitable for bladder cancer detection.
B7 homolog 1 (B7-H1), which is also known as programmed death-L1, is an important member of the B7/CD28 costimulatory factor superfamily, which are emerging as important mediators of various host immu...
The proteolytic region of cytokeratin-19, referred to as CYFRA21-1, is a soluble molecule present in the serum and other body fluids, and is considered a tumor marker in several neoplastic diseases. T...
Abstract Objective: To explore whether the functional chemokine receptor 5 delta32 (CCR5-Δ32) polymorphism is associated with susceptibility to cancer. Methods: A meta-analysis was conducted on the a...
Bladder cancer is the second most common cancer of the urinary tract. Despite existing multiapproach treatment strategies, including radical cystectomy, bladder-sparing therapy with transurethral rese...
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 ...
This is an ethically approved randomised controlled study looking at whether Cystodistension(filling the bladder with fluid under pressure) provides any benefit over cystoscopy alone (look...
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.
