Diagnostic Technology

Advances in cancer diagnostic testing have revolutionized cancer treatment and care. At the Cancer Center at Illinois, scientists are using their multidisciplinary expertise to develop devices and techniques that address a number of limitations of current diagnostics. Currently, many ways to diagnose cancer can be invasive, expensive, limited (requiring additional testing), and require patients to wait days or weeks for a proper diagnosis. CCIL researchers are developing improved imaging techniques and molecular measurement devices –  they can detect specific biologic molecules, or biomarkers, in a patient’s tissue and fluid samples – to tackle these issues.
