Cistoscopia

La cistoscopia es un procedimiento en el que se introduce un endoscopio flexible de fibra óptica en la vejiga urinaria, a través de la uretra. El médico llena la vejiga con agua e inspecciona su interior. La imagen que se ve a través del cistoscopio también puede observarse en un monitor y registrarse en una cinta de vídeo para su evaluación posterior.Cistoscopia
