Cancer is a complex disease that impacts every patient differently. Comprehensive, personalized treatment starts with an accurate, thorough diagnosis. At CBCC, our diagnostic team is led by oncologists trained in a wide variety of medical specialties who use sophisticated tests and procedures to help guide treatment decisions.
Diagnostics plays an important role throughout each patient’s cancer journey. We invest in cutting-edge technology to aid in tracking your tumor size, your disease progression, and your treatment response, so that we can modify our regimen accordingly.
You’re in good hands when you need any additional tests or care. The CBCC team will be by your side every step of the way with complete, compassionate care.
Imaging is a critical part of the diagnostic process. It allows oncologists to determine response to treatment. If a patient’s imaging results indicate something unusual, additional testing (such as a biopsy) can then be ordered.
At CBCC, we offer a variety of superior diagnostic imaging services that can detect even the smallest abnormalities. As a result, we have the ability to detect even the rarest cancers in their earliest stages, a key step in improving your treatment outcomes.
In addition, we have highly experienced radiologists, physicists, technologists, and physicians to accurately perform each test and interpret the results. Following each test, a radiologist will review your images and send a report of the findings to your doctor.
We have the technology to provide services including:
• Multi-Slice CT (Computed Tomography) Scan
• MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
• Breast MRI
• Nuclear Medicine Imaging
• DEXA Scan
• 3D Digital Mammography
• Dedicated Breast Ultrasound
Unlike diagnostic imaging tests, which are generally non-invasive or only minimally invasive, diagnostic procedures usually involve an analysis of tissue or blood, often from a biopsy.
The procedures we use in diagnosing cancer include:
• Core Needle Biopsy
• Pap Test
• Pelvic Exam
• Lab Tests & Pathology
• Tumor Markers
CBCC is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) – the gold standard of medical imaging.
The ACR has a rigorous set of independent standards for patient safety and top quality care, with only 10% of the nation's radiation oncology centers having successfully passed the evaluation. We are very proud to have received this prestigious ACR Accreditation.
