Diagnosing Cancer

After your screening, your doctor may order follow up tests at Wayne UNC Health Care.

Imaging

You’ll find advanced imaging technology that can take pictures of abnormal areas in your body so your doctor can examine it more closely. Depend on our trained, professional radiology technicians to perform a wide range of diagnostic testing procedures including MRI, PET and CT scans to help detect cancer at an early stage.

Biopsy

Your doctor may have you get a tissue sample, also called a biopsy, to check an irregular area after a screening or diagnostic imaging test. The procedure removes a small tissue sample to look at your cells and check for cancer. Our pathologist will examine your biopsy and send the results to your cancer doctor.
