- Diagnosing Brain and Spine Cancers
A brain cancer or spinal cancer diagnosis is scary. At AdventHealth, your cancer care team is here to help you feel empowered, strong, and ready for the challenges ahead. Catching signs of brain and spine cancer early is the best way to protect yourself. So we take advantage of the latest advances in diagnostic testing, like intraoperative 3-Tesla MRI, a powerful scanner that looks for brain and spinal cord tumors by producing the most-precise image possible. We'll need the full picture of your health to move forward. That’s why we bring you the latest in genetic counseling, imaging, and minimally invasive diagnostic testing, including:
- Blood and Urine Tests
- Chest X-Ray
- CT Scan
- Lumbar Puncture (Spinal Tap)
- Neurologic Exam
- PET Scan
We’ll always make sure you understand risk factors, the screening process, your symptoms, and anything in between. You ask. We answer. We strive. You thrive.
