    COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSIS

    Your diagnosis is determined using a variety of tests and technologies and may include:

    • Blood test
    • Lymph node test
    • Bone marrow biopsy
    • Computed tomography (CT or CAT scans)
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that uses high-field tesla magnets to obtain the most precise images
    • Positron emission tomography (PET scan)

    IMMUNOTHERAPY

    Immunotherapy, also known as biotherapy, uses your body's own immune system to help fight your blood cancer. This treatment can include the administration of therapeutic antibodies, cancer vaccines, lymphocyte infusion, or natural chemicals known as interferons and interleukins.

    RADIATION THERAPY

    Radiation therapy directs high-energy beams to shrink cancer cells and tumors. We offer options using the Varian Trilogy linear accelerator (LINAC).

    ACCESS TO CLINICAL TRIALS

    Our ongoing program of clinical trials may provide you the opportunity to take advantage of experimental drugs that offer new or improved cancer treatments.
