In addition to laboratory tests patients receive to help diagnose and understand the staging of cancer, labs are drawn prior to most treatment visits to: monitor a patient’s general health during treatment, check for potential side effects of the treatment, and determine whether a cancer is responding to treatment. The White Plains Hospital Cancer Program has a New York State certified laboratory on site. Having laboratory services on the premises helps minimize the time patients and physicians need to wait for results.
White Plains Hospital's Pathology Department provides diagnostic laboratory testing for the Cancer Program and is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Complete reports are usually available within one to two days of tissue sampling. Pathology and Laboratory services operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Radiologists use a variety of techniques and equipment to produce images of the human body and diagnose disease. White Plains Hospital’s Radiology Department is able to perform complex tests and emergency procedures. Our Radiology Department utilizes state-of-the-art equipment with board-certified Radiologists to provide our patients with the most precise results and highest quality care possible.
