Study of Effects of EndoSheath Cystoscopy versus Standard Cystoscopy

What we are studying

This study will be investigating the efficiency and health economics of using a sheathed cystoscope versus a standard flexible cystoscope. The sheathed cystoscope has a disposable, one-time use protective cover fitted over the scope called an EndoSheath. This technology is FDA-approved and we will be comparing the results with the standard cystoscope being currently used in the clinic. Patients will be required to complete a questionnaire after their procedure and return 10-14 days post-procedure for a urinalysis test.
