Diagnostic Services

Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center’s diagnostic technologies can provide the most accurate diagnosis and staging of your cancer. We take the time to make sure you understand our findings as well as your treatment options which may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these. Together we'll design a treatment plan that is best suited for your needs.

Carol G. Simon Cancer Center’s diagnostic services include:

  • Advanced breast biopsy unit – removes breast tissue for examination

  • Angiography – this radiographic technique visualizes blood vessels to reveal whether or not the cancer has spread to other organs via the blood vessels

  • Cytogenetics laboratory – we study the genetic blueprint of a tumor cell in order to understand how it is likely to grow, allowing us to customize treatment plans

  • Computed tomography (CT) – uses x-rays to take detailed pictures of the body’s internal structures

  • Endoscopy – used to identify and treat gastrointestinal cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum

  • Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) – combines endoscopy and ultrasound technologies to obtain high-quality images of organs and more accurately discovers and stages cancers of the esophagus, lung, stomach, pancreas, bile duct and rectum

  • Fluoroscopy – obtains real-time, moving images of internal body structures using an x-ray and fluorescent screen

  • Low-dose mammography – detects small cancers of the breast before they can be felt on physical examination

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to produce photographs and films of organs and structures inside the body

  • Nuclear medicine – gathers unique information about the structure and the function of major organ systems within the body enabling doctors to more accurately diagnose conditions and develop treatment plans

  • Pathology – board-certified pathologists work with surgeons during and after surgery to detect malignancies in tissue

  • Positron emission tomography (PET/CT) scanning – this dual function, noninvasive scanning device allows radiologists to pinpoint the location of tumors, nodules and other abnormal tissue and determine whether they are malignant or benign

  • Radiology
    • Radiofrequency ablation for pain management
    • Tumor embolization
    • Tracheal lung stenting
    • Needle aspiration biopsies
    • Post-treatment drainage procedures
    • Catheter-directed chemotherapy
    • Percutaneous vertebroplasty

  • Ultrasound – evaluates breast abnormalities by revealing information about the shape, texture, and composition of tumors and cysts

  • Vacuum assisted stereotactic breast biopsy – this minimally invasive outpatient procedure enables physicians to obtain enough breast tissue to make a definitive diagnosis without surgery, while using only a local anesthetic
