In the study of disease, imaging tests are of great value. Both in the diagnosis and later when planning interventions, knowing exactly what the morphology of an organ or its functionality is like is key. For this reason, in recent years there has been a great technological effort to achieve greater precision in these tests. One of the latest technologies is the digital gamma camera, a device that has just been incorporated into the services of the Hospital Clínic Group, a pioneer in the use of this type of technology throughout Spain.

A new molecular test detects genetic abnormalities in tumours and improves customised cancer diagnosis and treatment
At the Grupo Hospital Clínic, we have a new option for diagnosis of advanced cancer. It is a new test using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology which, by analysing the tumour’s DNA and RNA, detects multiple genetic abnormalities in 52 of your genes. This new cancer diagnostic test allows your treatment to be further customised. In addition, it improves current tests for the diagnosis of lung, colon and rectal cancer and melanoma.
