Urological Associates of Bridgeport is proud to announce that we now offer an advanced approach to detecting bladder cancer called Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview.

Bladder cancer is the growth of abnormal cells in the body. These extra cells grow together and form masses, called tumors. In bladder cancer, these growths happen in the bladder. Bladder cancer occurs when certain chemicals including cancer causing agents called arylamines become concentrated in the urine and cause cells in the bladder to start growing out of control.


An advanced approach to detecting bladder cancer

Blue Light Cystoscopy (BLC) with Cysview is a technology that significantly improves the detection of non-muscle invasive papillary cancer of the bladder as an adjunct to white light compared to traditional white-light cystoscopy alone.

Cysview is an optical imaging agent that is placed in the bladder one hour prior to the cystoscopic procedure using a catheter and is absorbed by cancerous tissue. Bladder image using white-light cystoscopy alone Same image after using BLC with Cysview as an adjunct to white light.

The doctor performs the cystoscopy by using both white light and blue light.

When the doctor switches to blue light, it makes cancerous tumors more visible and may highlight additional tumors.

Using BLC with Cysview in conjunction with white light allows the doctor to see more tumors than with standard white light cystoscopy alone.
