Molecular Diagnostics is a new way for doctors to look at the cancer cells. Previously, doctors only had the pathology report to categorize the cells. Molecular diagnostics gives doctors two new ways to categorize the cells.
This is beneficial because it can tell doctors more detailed information about a particular cancer cell. This information can lead to better treatment approaches and more targeted therapies. Intermountain Cancer Centers are on the cutting edge of this technology and use it where appropriate.
