How Personalized Cancer Medicine Works

Cancer Diagnosis Failures


Typically, standard cancer treatment starts with diagnostic tests such as an ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI. Unfortunately, these tests are far less effective in cancer detection than a PET/CT scan. If you or a loved one have received a cancer diagnosis, it’s essential that you understand the problems with standard cancer tests. They are the cause of many misdiagnoses and other issues.

  • Standard cancer diagnostics are problematic because they:
    • Do not effectively differentiate cancerous tissue from non-cancerous
    • Can not identify the most aggressive tumours
    • Do not clearly identify the location of all tumours in your body
  • Consequences of using standard diagnostics are:
    • Patients are frequently misdiagnosed
    • Doctors are unable to prioritize treatment for aggressive tumours
    • Tumours are often completely missed
    • Doctors remove only part of the tumour during surgery (since they didn’t see the rest)
