Screening & Diagnosing Cancer
Cancer treatment is only as successful as the ability to locate and target the tumor.
EvergreenHealth surgeons and oncologists work closely with EvergreenHealth's technically advanced Imaging Services to detect the cancer, determine its spread and establish the most effective treatment.
Common Diagnostic Tests
- CT Scan
- PET Scan
- Nuclear Medicine
EvergreenHealth's digital imaging and archiving system allows patient images to be viewed instantly in the operating rooms and on physician workstations around the EvergreenHealth campus as well as in physician offices.
The images can be input directly into the treatment planning software, helping to create the optimal course of cancer treatment.
Lung Cancer Screening Program
Lung cancer screening is a diagnostic imaging method which uses a small amount of radiation to detect early-stage lung cancer. The screening is performed with a low-dose computed tomography scan (CT scan), and may be recommended on an annual basis by your provider.
