    Optical diagnostics for Upper Urinary Tract Urothelial cancer: technology, thresholds and clinical applications

    Purpose: Developments in optical diagnostics have potential for less invasive diagnose of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma (UUT-UC). This systematic review provides an overview of technology, applications and limitations of recently developed optical diagnostics in the upper urinary tract and outlines their potential for future clinical applications. In addition, current evidence was evaluated. Literature search: A PubMed literature search was performed and papers on Narrow Band Imaging (NBI), Photodynamic Diagnosis (PDD), Storz Professional Imaging Enhancement System (SPIES), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (CLE) regarding UUT-UC were reviewed for data extraction. Study quality was reviewed according to QUADAS ...
