The best way to fight cancer is to diagnose it early, and that can be done through timely diagnosis. The process of identifying the right treatment plan for a patient starts with screening, which is available for breast cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer through Mammography, Pap Smear or PSA for the respective conditions. The process of diagnosing other cancers involves using various scans like PET CT, CT, MRI and X-ray, followed by evaluation through blood tests, biopsy and liquid biopsy.
Accurate diagnosis can be achieved by using digital mammography/MRI instead of conventional mammograms or ultrasounds. This helps in identifying suspicious lesions more accurately than their historical counterparts. Image guided biopsies help to reduce false and negative rates.
