What do urologists think of aScope 4 Cysto?

Initial physician evaluations highly positive

aScopeTM 4 Cysto was adopted by over 100 hospitals across the US in less than 150 days since its release in March. We asked 31 urologists at 12 of those sites to evaluate our new single-use cystoscope after performing procedures. 

This report summarizes clinicians’ highly positive evaluations of:

  • Overall scope and monitor performance 
  • Image quality
  • Bending capability

The rapid acceptance and promising initial clinical evaluations suggest significant benefits for adopters of this single-use cystoscopy solution.
