Diagnostics and Genetic Screenings

Carol G. Simon Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Multidisciplinary Program at Morristown and Overlook Medical Center provides pathological diagnosis of even the most unusual gastrointestinal tumors. Our radiologists are experts in interventional radiologic procedures and diagnostic services, such as:

Radiological Testing

Colon Cancer Screening Center

Beginning at age 50 both men and women should be screened for colorectal cancer. Our screening services include:

  • Stool occult blood screening

  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy – a procedure during which the physician inserts a flexible lighted tube containing a camera into the colon through the anus to check for polyps and other potential signs of cancer

  • Genetic counseling

  • 3D trans rectal ultrasound with ultrasound guided biopsy – provides better staging and treatment management of colorectal cancers

Colorectal Laboratory

We are specifically tailored to meet the needs of patients who suffer from anal incontinence, constipation, fissures, fistulas, structural abnormalities and colorectal tumors. Services include:

  • Anal manometry – helps evaluate those with impaired control over bowel function

  • Cine defogram – a painless x-ray examination that provides information on the function of the lower colon or rectum

  • Pudendal nerve test and electromyography (EMG) – tests the nerves and is used to identify problems with incontinence and constipation

  • Rectal ultrasound – identifies structural abnormalities specifically fistulas, fissures, and tumors

  • Biofeedback – a non-surgical therapy that assists patients in retraining anal sphincter muscles to alleviate symptoms of incontinence, constipation and rectal pain
