Cancer Diagnosis - Circulating Tumor Cells
Pittsburgh Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawsuit Attorneys
Cancer Misdiagnosis Lawyers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The current gold standard for determining the disease status of tumors involves the invasive biopsy of tumor samples, but in the early stages of metastasis, it is often difficult to identify a biopsy site. By capturing CTCs in blood samples, doctors can essentially perform a "liquid" biopsy, allowing for early detection and diagnosis, as well as improved monitoring of cancer progression and treatment responses.
If more studies confirm the technology’s effectiveness, doctors will be able to access and identify cancerous cells in the bloodstream. Identifying cancer cells present in the bloodstream will give the treating doctor to individually tailored treatments for patients and decrease the chances of metastatis. It promises a powerful new tool for future cancer early diagnosis, treatment and management to enhance survival.
