English
Authors' recomendations: Tests including BladderChek designed for the detection of bladder cancer in high risk patients, have poor sensitivity and poor positive predictive values. It is not recommended that these assays be used in asymptomatic patients but they may be useful in the monitoring of patients with transitional cell carcinoma between cytoscopies. Therefore it is recommended that this technology not be assessed further.
