Project Description

The purpose of this illustration is to present a detailed overview of diseases of the urinary tract, including the stages of bladder cancer and to highlight the diagnostic tool NBI (Narrow Band Imaging) used to more clearly visualize specific pathologies within the bladder. Without the need for dyes or drugs, NBI uses endoscopic light technology to effectively target bladder tumor biopsies that would not otherwise be detected under white light. The communication challenge involved accurately depicting key pathologic conditions of the urinary tract in a manner that would be both aesthetically pleasing and informative for the patient.
