    In patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, fluorescence cystoscopy can improve the detection and ablation of bladder tumors. In this paper we describe the technique and practical aspects of hexaminolevulinate (HAL) fluorescence cystoscopy, also known as "blue light cystoscopy"

    Keywords: blue light cystoscopy, bladder cancer, transurethral resection of the bladder tumor, Olympus Button Electrode,
