Computed Tomography Diagnosis and Staging for Cancer of Urinary Bladder
In recent years computed tomography (CT) has been used not only for diagnosis but also for staging of bladder tumors, because staging is very important in accessing prognosis and in therapy planning [1–3]. The aim of this study is to investigate thin-section CT imaging for the detection of bladder cancer and increase the accuracy of staging by CT.
