Ultrasonography is used to examine gross or microscopic hematuria without side effects. It is one of the methods of diagnosing bladder lesions, but in some cases, the lesions are not found. We attempted to identify the problems during the ultrasonic examination by analyzing the symptoms, location of lesion, and medical history of urothelial cancer for cases of undetected bladder lesions. Thirty-three patients who underwent transurethral resection of a bladder tumor from January 1 to May 4, 2018 in one hospital were enrolled in this study. Patients who underwent preoperative ultrasonography and cystoscopy were treated. Ultrasonography did not detect bladder lesions in five patients. The size of the lesion was 0.5~2.5 cm in various locations, such as the side, front, and so on. Ultrasonic examination requires more attention if there is gross hematuria or a history of urothelial cancer, and it is necessary to detect recurrence by conducting cystoscopy at the same time, especially when there are lesions on the anterior wall of the bladder.
