Laboratory testing provides valuable information at initial diagnosis and throughout cancer treatment. Compass Oncology has complete in-house laboratory services for rapid results. Our hematopathologist regularly consults with the treatment team to give patients the most effective plan possible.
Pathology interpretation is the microscopic and molecular analysis of a tumor. This analysis plays a pivotal role in determining your cancer treatment options. It provides insight into how quickly your cancer is growing, whether it is invasive or non-invasive, whether the cancer is likely to be responsive to hormone therapy, and many other factors that predict risk and guide treatment. Your Compass Oncology team includes expert pathologists working from our own leading-edge labs. Our physicians collaborate to interpret your unique pathology results and work closely with you to coordinate your personalized cancer treatment plan.
Advanced imaging technology plays a pivotal role in cancer diagnosis. It is an important tool to measure the extent of disease and the effectiveness of treatment. Compass Oncology utilizes in-house PET/CT scanners operated by skilled technologists to provide the earliest possible measurement of treatment success. Learn more about PET/CT technology.
It's often necessary to assess a patient's heart before, during and after treatment to be sure this organ is able to tolerate cancer treatment and to monitor for changes during treatment. Compass Oncology makes it easier for patients to get this test completed by taking it right in our office. We are an accredited facility for Echocardiography.
