New Tool for Cancer Patients

This May, Central Oregon Radiology Associates will be getting a new diagnostic tool to help patients.  Dave Magness is the Director of Imaging: “PET scan is an important modality for the cancer side of things, in the cancer community its used a lot for that because it’s very sensitive to tumors. And you also have it attached to a diagnostic quality CAT scanner. And CAT scan is very specific, so you get the sensitivity from the PET scan, you get eh specificity from the C-T scan.” This PET scan is currently at St. Charles, but will be moved to Central Oregon Radiology associates in May, as part of a partnership with the hospital.
