– A Journal Club Review by Badrinath Konety
Badrinath Konety, MD, MBA presents key finding from Blue Light Cystoscopy for the diagnosis of bladder cancer: Results from the US prospective multi-center registry published in Urologic Oncology: Seminars and Original Investigations, August 2018. This study evaluated the detection of malignant lesions in patients and documented the change in risk category due to upstaging or upgrading. The authors concluded that Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview significantly increases detection rates of CIS and papillary lesions compared to White Light Cystoscopy alone and can result in upstaging or upgrading in about 14% of patients. They also confirmed that repeat use of Cysview is safe.
