Viernes, Marzo 26, 2021

How should we evaluate asymptomatic microscopic hematuria? A 2012 guideline from the American Urological Association (AUA) recommended that all patients older than 35 with microscopic hema-turia — defined by the AUA as ≥ 3 red cells per high-power field — should undergo both computed  tomography urography (CTU) and cystoscopy.
