The current clinical study is aimed at evaluating the clinical relevance of an innovative device (called CyPaM2 device) that for the first time provides urologists with (i) a panoramic image of the bladder inner wall within the surgery time, and with (ii) a simultaneous (bimodal) display of fluorescence and white-light video streams during the fluorescence assisted?transurethral resection of bladder cancers procedure. The clinical relevance of this CyPaM2 device was evaluated on 10 patients according to three criteria (image quality, fluorescent lesions detection relevance, and ergonomics) compared with a reference medical device. Innovative features displayed by the CyPaM2 device were evaluated without any possible comparison: (i) simultaneous bimodal display of white-light and fluorescence video streams, (ii) remote light control, and (iii) time delay for the panoramic image building. The results highlight the progress to achieve in order to obtain a fully mature device ready for commercialization and the relevance of the innovative features proposed by the CyPaM2 device confirming their interest.
