In 2018 Biosignatures plans to initiate a multisite study to evaluate the utility and efficiency of the Videometrics system with the cystograph (bladder mapping) technology. As part of the initial planning for this study, we attended a Perspectives In Cancer Research Group meeting. This is a group of volunteers who all have personal experience of cancer, the group objective is to support cancer research at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
The meeting gave us a valuable insight into the patient perspective of the system and the utility of the bladder mapping technology as a tool to assist in the patient pathway and current procedures.
Biosignatures are looking for hospitals to be involved in the study, if you would like to be involved, or have any questions, please contact Sarah Groves our Clinical Operations Manager:
Technical development has already started on the creation of a map of the bladder walls, however, no video has yet provided us with full coverage of the bladder. We hope this study can demonstrate the utility of a systematic review of the whole bladder.
