Diagnostic Services

Providing An Accurate and Expedient Diagnosis

If cancer is suspected based on results of screening tests or your symptoms, your physician may recommend a biopsy, a tissue sample, to confirm the diagnosis. At NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, our highly experienced, board certified pathologists provide an accurate and expedient diagnosis and staging of your cancer, and will collaborate closely with your physician to formulate a treatment plan that is best for you.

Our diagnostic services include:

Interventional Radiology: Interventional radiologists work closely with oncologists and use minimally invasive approaches to evaluate suspicious areas and access tissue through image-guided biopsy in our outpatient radiology suite.

Needle Biopsy: The doctor uses a needle to withdraw fluid or tissue.

Surgical Biopsy: We offer surgical biopsy procedures and timely review by board-certified pathologists to maximize coordinated care and patient convenience.

PET/CT Scanning: In addition to other imaging exams and surgery, your physician may recommend positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanning to stage your cancer, identify the extent of disease, and monitor your cancer during and after your treatment.
