Cancer Biopsy Screening and Treatment
Cancer and Biopsy Screening and Imaging
Cryoblation: Also called targeted cryoblation or cryosurgery, this is a minimally invasive treatment that freezes and destroys diseased tissue, including cancer cells.
Image-guided Biopsy: Imaging technology guides precision in obtaining tissue samples to test for the presence of cancer.
Lung Cancer Screening: For people at high risk for lung cancer, a low-dose CT scan of the chest using up to 90% less radiation captures images that can diagnose early stage lung disease.

Radiofrequency (RF) Ablation: Image-guidance is used in the treatment of lung cancer, transmitting heat through a needle to destroy cancer cells in the lungs.
Y-90 Radioembolization Removal: This procedure entails the administration of Yitrium- 90 (Y-90) microspheres (a form of radiation) into blood vessels that travel to the liver. This is a treatment that is used to slow down the progression of metastatic liver disease in patients who are not surgical candidates.
