Skilled doctors and new technology improve the odds of catching cancer early.
 

Early detection is critical to effectively treating cancer and saving lives. New tests and advanced medical imaging help physicians recognize and treat early-stage cancer.

At Ellis Medicine, we have long been a leader in medical imaging and use procedures such as surgical biopsy, blood testing, mammography, endoscopy, and colonoscopy to detect and diagnose cancer. We also use these imaging tools to diagnose and detect cancer:

  • CT (computed tomography) – CT scanners create detailed 3-D images of the body. Our new software helps reduce exposure to radiation during a CT scan by up to 40%.
  • Digital mammography – Coupled with computer-assisted detection capability, digital mammography provides enhanced images of the breasts and the ability to closely examine any areas of concern.
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) – MRIs create detailed 2-D and 3-D body images for diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • PET (positron emission tomography) – PET imaging gives physicians information about the chemical functions of your body, which helps diagnose different types of cancers.
  • Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy uses specialized cameras to diagnose lung cancer early.

The Advanced Screenings You Need

Thanks to our partnership with Roswell Park, we can also offer advanced genetic screenings for cancer for people who have an inherited risk factor for cancer. Genetic screening is most recommended for people who have a large family history of cancer, particularly cancer that strikes at an early age, rare cancers, or if multiple individuals get the same type of cancer.

If you have a family history of cancer, your doctor might recommend earlier cancer screenings as well as genetic testing to look for genes associated with cancer. Your results are reviewed by the Genetic Screening team to determine if you are at an increased risk of cancer and what steps you should take to lower your risk.
