For Your Information:

Advanced diagnostics

A thorough and accurate cancer diagnosis is the first step in developing an individualized cancer treatment plan. When you first visit one of our hospitals, we will perform a complete array of diagnostic tests to accurately confirm your diagnosis and plan your individualized treatment.

This initial diagnostic evaluation typically takes about three to five days.

The following are some common diagnostic tests:

  • A review of health history
  • Physical examination
  • Laboratory tests (blood, urine, etc.)
  • Biopsy
  • Imaging tests (X-ray, PET/CT, MRI, ultrasound, etc.)
  • Nuclear medicine scans (bone scans, etc.)
  • Endoscopy
  • Genetic tests

Diagnostics plays an important role throughout your cancer treatment:

  • Before treatment, we will accurately locate tumors, stage the disease, and determine an appropriate combination of cancer treatments for you.

  • During your treatment, we will track the size of the tumor, progression of the disease, and your response to treatment, and modify your treatment accordingly. Minimally invasive tools like navigational bronchoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound allow us to find and reach very small tumors without the risks of surgery.

  • After you complete treatment, we will follow up with you to evaluate any symptoms you may have, and schedule regular check-ups to monitor for any signs of metastasis or recurrence. Technologies allow us to accurately detect small lesions in areas of the body subject to movement, like the breasts, lungs, colon and prostate.
