Fox Chase Cancer Center offers the most advanced Preventive Screening.
From mammography to PET/CT scan and MRI, the Women's Cancer Center provides standard and advanced screening for cancer. The results are reviewed by interpreting physicians, medical physicists, and radiological technologists, and if anything results, the same physicians who can treat you are here at the facility, part of the taem from the beginning.
If a screening discovers a non-cancerous (benign) condition, we can treat that as well.
