Vesical Imaging Reporting and Data System (VI-RADS) score is a novel imaging tool able to differentiate superficial from muscle-invasive bladder cancer before transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT). Within the category of high-risk non–muscle-invasive bladder cancers, VI-RADS could differentiate those not needing repeated TURBT (Re-TURBT) from those who should definitely not miss Re-TURBT.
