Cysview: Who It’s For
Anyone who is suspected of having or is known to have bladder cancer (from a previous cystoscopy) can have BLC with Cysview.
Ideally, it should be used in:
- first transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT)
- first follow-up cystoscopy
- the management of intermediate-risk patients
- the management of high-risk patients
For use in first TURBT and the management of intermediate and high-risk patients1
Recommended patient types2,3
- Patients receiving first TURBT because of suspicion of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC)
- Patients receiving repeat TURBT
- Patients who received BCG treatment (to assess response after 6 weeks)
- Patients undergoing surveillance
- Referred patients (who have not previously had a Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview) who will be receiving intravesical therapy when residual disease is suspected
- Patients with positive cytology and negative White Light Cystoscopy
Cysview may not detect all bladder tumors and is not a replacement for random biopsies.
