A Comparison of White-Light Cystoscopy and Narrow-Band Imaging Cystoscopy to Detect Bladder Tumor Recurrence

A Comparison of White-Light Cystoscopy and Narrow-Band Imaging Cystoscopy to Detect Bladder Tumor Recurrence

The study evaluated 427 patients for recurrent bladder tumours by WLI cystoscopy, followed by NBI cystoscopy as a further procedure, using the same video-cystoscope. Recurrent tumours visualized by WLI or NBI cystoscopy were mapped, imaged, biopsied and subsequently treated by transurethral resection (TUR) or fulguration. Biopsies or TUR specimens obtained by WLI and NBI were examined separately for presence of tumour. Learn more
