Ultrasound in the Staging of Bladder Tumours

Authors


Summary

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.
