Ultrasound and Bladder Cancer

While cystoscopy is considered the gold standard for bladder cancer diagnosis, it is an expensive and invasive procedure.  As the incidence of bladder cancer rises, urologists are using transabdominal ultrasound for initial screening and to visualize the location and size of bladder carcinomas.

A 2017 study of patients with indications for cystoscopy found that ultrasound has high sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of bladder cancer in patients suspected in the first stage. The most common finding was presence of papillary tumors in the bladder and the lowest frequency was related to cystic tumours.

The follow is an exam captured by Dr. Kevin Zorn using the Clarius C3. Dr. Zorn, who posted in Clarius Cases, notes that the patient was a “56 year only smoker with gross hematuria.  Imaging clearly demonstrates a sessile, vascular tumor 2cm along the Right lateral wall well away from the ureteric orifices and trigone. Confirmed exactly as expected at cystoscopy.”
