Ultrasound - It is a non-invasive scanning technique. Ultrasound images are created using sound waves and are able to gather real-time images of both anatomy and function. It helps us in the initial evaluation of urinary bladder to look for any solid tumor.
TURBT (Transurethral bladder tumor resection) - The surgeon inserts a tool called Resectoscope through the urethra to reach the inside of the bladder. This tool has a surgical loop on it that resects or cuts off a sample of the tumor tissue or in some cases resects the entire tumor from the bladder.
