Brushes, Cytology, Urinary Tract/Bladder, Endoscopic
Definition : Cytology brushes designed to scrape and collect cells from the urinary tract or bladder through the working channel of a flexible cystoscope. These brushes usually consist of a cluster of plastic or metallic bristles attached to a wire, possibly surrounded by a plastic sleeve, that runs back to a handle for external brush manipulation. The characteristics of urinary tract/bladder brushes, including diameter and length, should match one or more models of cystoscopes; these brushes may be intended for reuse or, more frequently, for single use.
