OBJECTIVE Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) for the detection of bladder cancer has become a diagnostic tool in several hospitals. Several studies have reported different rates of false positive biopsies(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify patient groups associated with a high probability of false positives in photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) of bladder cancer for which the use of highly specific optical instruments(More)
BACKGROUND Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) is a technique that enhances the detection of occult bladder tumors during cystoscopy using a fluorescent dye. OBJECTIVE To study the differential effects of(More)
The overall quality of Raman spectra in the near-infrared region, where biological samples are often studied, has benefited from various improvements to optical instrumentation over the past decade.(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study is to evaluate the quality of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) and transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT) among different urologists. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
Raman spectroscopy has the ability to provide differential diagnosis of different cancers with high sensitivity and specificity. A major limitation in its clinical application is the weak nature of(More)
