“In non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer, we need more biomarkers, something that can hopefully reduce the frequency of invasive procedures for these patients,” says Kristen Scarpato, MD, MPH.

In this video, Kristen Scarpato, MD, MPH, discusses what is being done to improve the treatment options for patients with non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer, including what she does in her own practice. These ideas were focused on in a case-based discussion on intermediate-risk non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer that took place during the 2021 Society of Urologic Oncology Annual Meeting. Scarpato is an associate professor, residency program director, and vice chair of education in the department of urology at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
