The American Urological Association, the Society of Urologic Oncology and the European Association of Urology have recently updated their guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Several studies show that adherence to these guidelines is low, especially in North America. Physicians should try to comply with these guidelines to ensure optimal quality of care.
