1. First Ever Report of Cellvizio(r) Use in Cystoscopy: New Data On World's Smallest Microscope Presented At American Urology Association (AUA) Annual Meeting

    PARIS, April 27, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New data show that real-time, in vivo imaging with Cellvizio(r), the world's smallest microscope, can be used in the urology field and may help urologists to differentiate low and high-grade bladder tumors from normal bladder tissue, according to data presented today at the American Urological Association's (AUA) Annual meeting being held in Chicago from April 25th to 30th. Cellvizio probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) provides live images of internal human tissues at the cellular level during examination procedures enabling faster clinical decision making.

    1. There is a significant need for more sensitive and specific, less invasive, and cost effective diagnostic modality for bladder cancer...There is considerable interest in the urologic community to improve the diagnostic accuracy of white light cystoscopy, as evidenced by interests in imaging modalities such as fluorescence cystoscopy and optical coherence tomography.
