Abstract Objective A combination of fluorescence imaging with in vivo local fluorescence spectroscopy (LFS) was used to improve the predictive ability of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) of superficial bladder cancer after intravesical instillation of Alasense, a 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-based agent. Material and method A total of 62 patients with superficial malignancies of the urinary bladder were included in a preliminary clinical study. Nineteen patients underwent autofluorescence (AF… CONTINUE READING
