The clinical value of the uCyt+/ImmunoCyt™ test was evaluated as a noninvasive tool for the detection of recurrent urothelial carcinoma (UC). Used as a noninvasive tool, cytology combined with the uCyt+/ImmunoCyt test may reduce the morbidity and cost of follow-up in patients who have a low risk of recurrent UC, although additional studies will be necessary to establish and compare the morbidity and cost of each method.
