Our pediatric radiologists use a comprehensive battery of techniques, including ultrasound, ultra-fast CT scanning, MRI, radio-nucleotide imaging, and PET scanning to detect primary and metastatic tumors.
Our surgeons are leaders in minimally invasive diagnostic approaches. Using laparasopic techniques, our surgeons can biopsy (or sample) many tumors in the chest and other hard-to-reach places through tiny incisions. Our surgeons are considered pioneers in this area. They are using minimally invasive approaches for unique situations that would require open surgery at other medical centers--saving more children from unnecessary pain.
In addition, our hemato-pathologists are internationally respected for their abilities to diagnose complex cases of leukemia, lymphoma, and blood diseases. They literally wrote "the book" on leukemia--the World Health Organization's textbook on diagnosing leukemia. Because of their extensive knowledge and experience, our hemato-pathologists are regularly called upon to consult on difficult cases.
