Research and Development
Where we would like to take Videometrics…
Videometrics has a program of ongoing research and development to further optimise the diagnosis of bladder cancer and improve patient care. It is possible that not everything described here will make it into clinical practice, but we’re pretty excited about the potential!
Contrast enhancement: Allows the examiner to see more from a white light cystoscopy without the need for new equipment.
Frame enhancement: Builds a clearer, higher resolution image from many video images.
Debris removal: Remove debris from the video image, allowing a clearer view of the walls of the bladder. As you can see in this video, it’s like a magic viewing glass!
We are exploring how to build a map of the patient’s bladder. It would allow:
- Verification that the whole bladder has been reviewed.
- Quick and efficient identification of the location of a potential cancer for biopsy.
- Monitoring across multiple sites within the bladder.
- Monitoring of sites of concern over time.
Videometrics is developed to address challenges within the cystoscopy clinic. If you have suggestions for new features, or would like to be involved in a clinical study of the features above, please get in touch.
