Early Detection and Diagnosis

Ealry Dection and Diagnosis

Focused on early detection

Discovering cancer at the earliest stages offers the best opportunity for successful treatment, and Lehigh Regional Medical Center is committed to promoting early detection through screenings and advanced diagnostic services.

Technology for cancer diagnosis

Our state-of-the-art diagnostic technology has the capability to detect cancer at the earliest stages:

  • Advanced imaging technology – Computerized tomography (CT or CAT scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound imaging (sonography), positron emission tomography (PET), PET/CT scanning and other advanced imaging technologies provide a detailed picture of internal organs and tissues to detect cancer
  • Biopsy – Biopsies determine whether cells are cancerous and if so, determine the type and stage of cancer. Advanced imaging technology — such as MRI, CT and ultrasound — are often combined with minimally invasive techniques to obtain tissue samples
