Holy Cross Hospital uses state-of-the art diagnostic imaging to quickly and accurately detect and diagnose cancer. These tests also help your doctor determine the best treatment plan for your diagnosis and gauge how well your treatment may be working. 

Our specially trained radiologists and technologists perform a range of advanced diagnostic tests including digital mammography as well as ultrasound, MRI, CAT SCAN, PET SCAN and a combined PET CT SCAN. Learn more about these and other advanced diagnostics available at Holy Cross Hospital to detect and diagnose breast and other cancers.

Screening Services
The Holy Cross Hospital Cancer Institute is committed to educating patients and our community about the need for cancer screening for all types of cancer. Regular screenings can help identify cancer at the earliest stages, leading to better patient outcomes. Cancer screening is especially important for those who may be at higher risk for cancer due to family history or other factors. Learn more about our comprehensive cancer screening services for many kinds of cancers, including breast, prostate, colon and other kinds of cancers that can develop with advancing age.

Community Outreach
Serving our community is an important part of the Holy Cross Hospital mission. We provide cancer screening services for breast, gynecological and prostate cancer, plus cancer care for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

Cancer affects many of those in our diverse neighborhoods. Each year, we review our local community health needs and may add to our community outreach programs. This year, for example, Holy Cross Hospital developed a new program aimed at Asian-American women and breast cancer. Learn more about cancer community outreach efforts.
