Diagnosis & Testing

As part of the process of determining whether or not a patient is a candidate for blood or marrow transplantation, a series of tests are undertaken to evaluate the extent and severity of disease.

We understand that travel and time are issues with many people, so we try to coordinate all tests during one visit or at your doctor's office.

During the evaluation, a patient will have several tubes of blood drawn that will be used for a number of tests. Additional tests that may be reuqired include chest x-rays, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and pulmonary function tests. If necessary, a PET scan or other required tests will also be run.
