1. Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to White Light Cystoscopy for Intravesical Real-Time Imaging and Staging of Bladder Cancer

    Objectives Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel, real-time endoscopic imaging modality that permits delineation of microarchitectural features of bladder lesions. It may provide an extension of conventional cystoscopy by allowing noninvasive examination of bladder tissue at microscopic resolution (10 to 20 μm). The purpose of this study was to examine the application of OCT in augmenting the diagnosis and staging of bladder lesions. Methods We conducted a retrospective institutional review board–approved, single-institution, single-user review on the use of OCT as an adjunct to conventional cystoscopy in 32 patients with a history of bladder cancer (24), primary tumor (6 ...
