University Hospital offers new non-invasive technique to detect recurrent tumors at their cellular level
A non-invasive imaging technique used to find recurrent tumors at their cellular level, is now available to select patients at University Hospital of SUNY Upstate Medical University.
The use of the technique, especially for certain types of cancer, has demonstrated to be superior to other diagnostic tools in detecting primary and recurrent disease as well as local, regional and distant metastases within the human body. Ultimately, its use can spare some patients unnecessary surgery, provide more targeted therapies to others, or help physicians to better determine the proper course of management for certain diseases.
