Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the utility of CT in diagnosing bladder malignancies, CT protocol options that may improve the conspicuity of bladder tumors, suggestive imaging features, and potential mimics. CONCLUSION. Although evaluation of the bladder has traditionally been considered purely the realm of cystoscopy, many bladder tumors can be identified with CT. However, diagnosis requires optimization of CT technique and close attention to a number of potentially subtle findings.
