abstract

  • Positive FISH predicts recurrence and progression in patients under NMIBC surveillance with suspicious cytology but negative cystoscopy. However, there was no association between the FISH result and tumour recurrence in the immediate follow-up period. Reflex FISH testing for suspicious cytology might have limited ability to modify surveillance strategies in NMIBC.
