Brief Summary:
The purpose of this pilot study is to develop the methodology for an innovative subsurface imaging technology that was designed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. It will allow the non-invasive analysis and imaging of tissues and chemical distributions in the body at an imaging depth of up to 1 centimeter with spatial resolution on the order of 1 mm.

Condition or disease
Bladder Cancer

Detailed Description:
This is a pilot, feasibility study to determine if the subsurface imaging technology warrants advancement to a larger clinical trial.

Patients undergoing a surgical bladder procedure in the main O.R.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accuracy of the subsurface laser to determine cancer cells versus normal cells when viewed endoscopically during a surgical procedure. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Does the subsurface laser allow enough light to visually assess the cells. Logical metric of either "Yes" or "No".
