Ultrasound in the Staging of Bladder Tumours



The ultrasonic features of 162 bladder tumours are described.

Comparing clinical staging by the TNM system and the ultrasonic appearances, there is a high degree of accuracy in staging by ultrasound.

The use of this painless non-invasive technique is assessed and should be used in staging bladder tumours only in conjunction with other established methods, and not in isolation.
