Image Lab

Prior to treatment and frequently during treatment, our patients will have lab tests performed to check their blood counts, electrolytes, liver chemistries. Tumor markers such as CEA, CA-19, CA-15, AFP and others, which are proteins released by some cancers, are followed to monitor the effectiveness of treatment. Blood is drawn from our patient's Port-a-cath and studied in our clinic lab and some are sent out to local reference labs

Our nursing staff, PA and Dr. Trezona will spend time explaining laboratory results so that our patients understand how the chemotherapy/immunotherapy is affecting their body
