Diagnostic Imaging for Detection and Diagnosis
Detecting cancer and getting an accurate diagnosis early in the process is vital to long-term success. Our physicians use advanced radiology equipment – such as MRI, CT and mammography – to help them diagnose your cancer and create the proper treatment plan. This equipment is used to detect tumors throughout your entire body.
Oncology Surgical Services for Treatment
Surgeons at Southwest Healthcare perform surgical procedures to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. They can take biopsies of tissue to determine if it is cancerous. They can also remove some or all of the tumor based on the best course of treatment for your particular cancer.
Surgical services are available to treat several forms of cancer, including bladder, prostate, lung, thyroid, colon and breast.
