An Accurate Gastrointestinal-Cancer Diagnosis

Wellness is within reach. Catching gastrointestinal (GI) cancer early gives you more treatment options — and more reason to hope for better outcomes. But getting there means asking all of your questions and working through the answers. At AdventHealth, we pave the way by providing a safe, soothing diagnostic environment — and by giving you the latest in genetic counseling, testing, and imaging. Our imaging experts aim for same-day diagnostic test results whenever possible, so you can get answers and get started on treatment. We put the focus on getting you the full picture by offering minimally invasive diagnostic testing that includes:

  • Barium Swallow
  • Biopsy
  • Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound
  • Endoscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • MRI
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) or PET-CT Scan
  • X-Ray

You'll always feel heard. Our team of GI oncologists and other experts is here to answer any question you may have about risk factors, the screening process, symptoms, and anything in between.
