What’s the use in having excellent data if there’s no one around to make sense of it? Personalized research is one of the most critical components of precision oncology. Without it, the information gathered about your gene mutations isn’t going to do anyone much good. You need a trained medical researcher who’s extremely experienced in analyzing data from the most comprehensive genetic panels, liquid biopsies, and contrast-enhanced PET/CT scans.
When you begin the precision oncology process for cancer treatment, you’ll usually get several diagnostic tests done. The exact tests will depend on your specific case. These innovative tests will likely include a PET/CT scan, liquid biopsy, comprehensive genetic panel, and possibly an MMR/MSI test. As soon as CTOAM receives the results from these tests, our cancer research specialists immediately begin conducting detailed personalized research on them.
As we receive more of your test results, CTOAM’s research process continues. Each step involves analyzing and interpreting the test results and creating a report for your oncologist. The timeline usually looks like this.
CTOAM’s researchers analyze and interpret the results of your:

"We had great success with CTOAM for my husband, Greg’s melanoma. Greg has followed CTOAM’s recommendations and is now over 5 years cancer free!" – Mary, wife of Greg (CTOAM patient and melanoma survivor)
"I‘ve just trusted in the medical system in this country forever and I was really surprised to find that by going to a private oncologist that CTOAM connected me with, I could get the drugs I actually need versus the drugs that BC Cancer Agency could give me. CTOAM was able to help me get these drugs, so I’m not paying for them. I know that before starting the targeted drugs I was feeling really bad. I don’t think I ever realized how badly I was feeling. And I feel wonderful now! It’s incredible how I feel now. I’m almost afraid to say it…they’re going to make me go back to work!" – Lisa (CTOAM patient and breast cancer survivor)
