Other In-office Procedures


Cystoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows an Ogden Clinic urologist to examine the bladder lining, collect urine samples and biopsies, remove small stones, and examine the prostate gland and tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A hollow tube called a cystoscope is equipped with a lens and inserted into the urethra. The cystoscope slowly advances into the bladder to assist in diagnosing urinary tract and prostate disease.

Cystoscopy with Bladder Biopsy

Cystoscopy is a diagnostic surgical procedure that involves the insertion of a cystoscope into the bladder through the urethra, which is the opening in the body through which urine is expelled. Samples of cells or tissue from the bladder can be collected and sent to a pathologist for evaluation. Abnormalities of the bladder are found during this exam.

Prostate Ultrasound and Biopsy

A prostate ultrasound evaluates abnormal results of a digital rectal exam or an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. A prostate ultrasound involves a probe about the size of a finger that is inserted a short distance into the rectum. The probe produces harmless high-frequency sound waves that are recorded and transformed into images of the prostate gland to visualize the prostate. The ultrasound imaging is used to guide a small biopsy needle into the prostate. The needle removes small amounts of tissue to be analyzed. Results of the procedure will assist your Ogden Clinic urologist in diagnosing prostate disorders and diseases.

Scrotal Lesion Removal

A removal of a lump that can be felt in the skin of the scrotum. The lesion (or growth) may result from a variety of factors. The findings from such a procedure are commonly benign. A biopsy or removal can provide diagnosis and treatment.

BCG Bladder Cancer Treatment

Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) treatment is an effective non-invasive treatment for high-grade bladder cancer. With BCG treatment, your Ogden Clinic urologist will instill immunotherapy medication directly into the bladder through a catheter. With this method, the drug can affect the cells lining the bladder without having a major effect on other parts of the body.
