It’s important to stay abreast of what are some of the particular concerns and risks of patients. A great example is pancreatic cancer screening. It has been discovered that patients at risk for pancreatic cancer are better diagnosed through MRI screening.
If you perform MRI screenings for cancer, it helps to know that you now have the opportunity to help a patient get a better and more timely diagnosis. It was stated in an article in dotmed.com that “Pancreatic cancer is the eighth most common cancer in Europe and about 104,000 new cases were diagnosed in 2012, according to Cancer Research UK. In addition, it’s the 12th most common cancer worldwide.”
While this is not an encouragement for unnecessary testing it does help by providing additional early detection options.
