Bladder cancer is a broad term used to describe all types of cancers affecting the urinary bladder:
- transitional cell carcinoma (urinary bladder): most common primary neoplasm of the bladder
- squamous cell carcinoma (urinary bladder): accounts for around 3-8% of all bladder cancers
- adenocarcinoma (urinary bladder): accounts for around 1% of all bladder cancers
- small cell carcinoma (urinary bladder): extremely rare
The Vesical Imaging-Reporting and Data System (VI-RADS) scoring system was created in 2018 to standardize imaging and reporting of bladder cancer staging with multiparametric MRI .
