Imaging Tests

What is an Imaging Test?

Imaging tests produce detailed pictures of soft tissues, organs, and bones inside the body.

These images show a tumor’s location. Doctors called radiologists analyze the images and provide detailed descriptions.

Their reports help doctors diagnose and treat childhood cancer. During treatment, imaging shows the medical team how cancer responds to therapy. After treatment, patients have imaging tests as part of follow-up visits to check for any changes.
