Understanding Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the inside of the urinary bladder and urethra using a cystoscope—a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light at the tip. It allows urologists to visualize the lining of the bladder and urethra to diagnose and treat various urinary tract conditions.

Preparation and Procedure

At Neo TrueNorth, we prioritize patient comfort and safety during cystoscopy. The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • Preparation: Before the procedure, the patient may be asked to empty their bladder and change into a gown. Depending on the type of cystoscopy, local anesthesia or sedation may be provided to minimize discomfort.
  • Insertion of Cystoscope: The cystoscope is gently inserted into the urethra and advanced into the bladder. The camera at the tip of the cystoscope transmits live images to a monitor, allowing the urologist to examine the bladder and urethral lining in real-time.

  • Visual Examination: The urologist carefully examines the bladder and urethra for any abnormalities, such as inflammation, tumors, stones, or signs of infection. Special instruments may be passed through the cystoscope to collect tissue samples for biopsy or to perform treatments such as removing bladder stones or tumors.

  • Completion and Removal: Once the examination is complete, the cystoscope is gently removed, and any discomfort is minimal. The patient may be able to return to normal activities shortly after the procedure.
