CARE: What Does that
Many times you hear the phrase,
“Complete cancer care,” and you
ask yourself, what does that mean?
With the fast pace of technology,
working in conjunction with
different forms of treatment,
diagnosis, and patient monitoring,
cancer care has become more and
more advanced. With the new
wave of technology, the ability to
monitor how effective your
chemotherapy or your radiation is,
is right at your finger tips, with an
array of options. With the newest
technologies like CTC (Circulating
Tumor Cell Assay), just approved
by the FDA, which counts the
exact number of circulating tumor
cells in the body and PET/CT
(Positron Emission Tomography),
patients can monitor the progress
of their treatment at any time.
Physicians are now able to use this
technology to determine if the
treatment is not effective, if the
treatment needs to be changed, or
even if the treatment options were
successful. Also with the newest
genetic testing options, patients
have access to care even before
being diagnosed with cancer. At
the Gettysburg Cancer Center you
have the availability of
chemotherapy and radiation, the
newest technologies including
CTC, PET/CT, genetic testing,
and much more all under one roof,
any day of the week. The
Gettysburg Cancer Center has
been located in Adams County for
over 20 years with the main goal
of moving rapidly with all new
advancements in Cancer
Treatment. If you have questions
about your care, what different
options you have, call the
Gettysburg Cancer Center at
