Evolution of Technology and Technique in Bladder Cancer - Ashish Kamat

(Length of Discussion: 10 min)

Ashish Kamat and Alicia Morgans discuss the highlights of his presentation at LUGPA 2018, on the evolution of technology and technique when treating bladder cancer. The initial resection of the bladder is paramount to the path of management for these patients, including the type of anesthesia, angles of scopes, white light and blue light detection, narrow-band imaging as well as multiparametric imaging. They further discuss the value of integrating these technologies in community practice where most initial diagnoses are made.
