Cystoscopy Overview

• Bladder tumors and stones

• Diverticula and scarring

• Urethral lesions (stones, strictures, prostatic occlusion)

• Provide access to the upper urinary tract

Cystoscopy requires an endoscope, camera head, irrigation, a light source, and a TV monitor (ideally with video recording facility).
