1. Optical coherence tomography in diagnosis of urinary bladder cancer

    (Article in Russian) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was tested in diagnosis of bladder cancer (BC) in 100 BC suspects. This method showed higher sensitivity (by 16%) in diagnosis of BC compared to standard cystoscopy as it more presicely identified squamous intraepithelial and noninvasive tumors. The analysis of OCT images was made with a noval computer program of filtration and color overlay. This improved quality of the image allowed verification or rejection of BC, its localization on urinary bladder wall. PMID: 19526873 [PubMed - in process]
