When it comes to the discovery, diagnosis and treatment of your cancer, laboratory testing is what gives us a microscopic view of what’s happening on a cellular level. Your results can help us figure out tumour size, the aggressiveness of your cancer, or even absence and remission of cancer.
In other words: It’s not just how we monitor the success of your cancer treatment plan, but also a critical decision-making tool when it comes to mapping out your road to recovery.
We perform fundamental lab tests for our patients, along with some very unique and advanced tests, to help you design your ideal cancer care plan
We’re happy to review medical tests performed by your medical oncologist such as lab reports, current blood work, MRIs, CT scans, biopsy reports, ultrasounds, tissue studies, tumour marker tests and bone scans.
Our attention to these smaller details will help us to personalize your cancer treatment plan and give us a chance to help you better understand your lab results (and interpret what looks like “Greek” to you).
More importantly, it allows us to keep tabs on your response to natural treatment, so we can make the right adjustments at the right times.
