Cancer Diagnostics: From the Basics to the Cutting Edge
Available for RACE Approved CE credit if watched from 5:30pm-6:20pm CST on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
Several exciting advances have been made in recent years with regard to diagnostic testing for various tumor types. The evolution of molecular diagnostics, sophisticated predictive models to anticipate individual patient response to therapy, and the advent of cutting-edge techniques involving liquid biopsy and next-generation sequencing for tumor mutation analysis, have revolutionized the approach to both the diagnosis and management of these patients. This presentation reviews the basics of working up the veterinary patient with suspected or known cancer, and introduces new diagnostic modalities that may detect cancer at an earlier stage and allow for more nuanced monitoring of these patients.
