Cystoscopy is a standard endoscopy. Doctors use a transurethral cystoscope to observe interior conditions of the urinary bladder and urethra. Diagnosis of specific urinary system disease can be made based on the acquired conditions. For instance, urethral stricture, diverticula, cystitis cystica and prostatic enlargement. Besides basic functions on inspection, cystoscopy can be used to operate some treatments as well, which includes cystodiathermy, removing bladder stones, hemostasis and lesions in other organs that associated with the bladder. Doctors can choose various types of cystoscopes to operate cystoscopy or treatment according to the diverse symptoms of the patients.
