Our cancer diagnostic and treatment services

Our goal is to provide the highest level of care for our patients, offering advanced technology and treatments for various types of cancer.

Cancer diagnostic services

To receive the right treatment, you need to start with the right diagnosis. Our experienced technologists use advanced diagnostic imaging to help identify the best path forward, including:

  • Computerized tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Mammography
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Ultrasounds
  • X-rays
Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine is a diagnostic imaging service that creates detailed images at the cellular and molecular level. Using a small amount of radioactive "radiotracers," this safe and painless procedure allows the physician to observe your biological processes and measure chemicals, all in real time.

With this noninvasive method, we can identify cancer much sooner than with other types of imaging. Your doctor can see changes that are otherwise invisible to the human eye, allowing for a more personalized and effective treatment plan.

Cancer treatment options

We specialize in cancer care, so we offer various treatment options. The type of treatment, or combination of treatments, that is right for you will depend on your unique condition. Our team will work together with you to personalize a care plan for your needs.

Biological therapy

Biological therapy, also called biotherapy or immunotherapy, is a cancer treatment that kills cancerous cells using the body's own immune system. This treatment causes the immune system to recognize and attack cancerous cells to decrease the rate of growth and/or to prevent them from spreading.

Biotherapy is a good option for many patients because it sometimes causes fewer side effects than other treatments. Your doctor will help you determine if this is best for you.

Chemotherapy

Our cancer care program offers chemotherapy at Blue Ridge Cancer Center, our in-house infusion center. Chemotherapy uses cancer-fighting medications to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells.

Surgical oncology

Surgical procedures are effective and common methods of cancer treatment. Our experienced surgeons perform procedures to remove cancerous tumors to prevent more cancer cells from forming and spreading in the body.
