Diagnosing and monitoring of urogenital schistosomiasis
Although urogenital schistosomiasis remains a major global challenge, Michael Hsieh, M.D., Ph.D., director of Transitional Urology at Children’s National Hospital, and other experts including Eglal Shalaby Rana, M.D., from Children’s National, show in a new study published in Advances in Parasitology that newer refinements in associated technologies may lead to improvements in patient care.
In addition, application of investigational imaging methods, such as confocal laser endomicroscopy and two-photon microscopy in urogenital schistosomiasis, are likely to contribute to the understanding of this infection’s pathogenesis.
