At CCDC, we put together advanced technology and years of expertise to establish the one-stop solution for Cancer Diagnosis that mainly aims to provide an absolute diagnosis of every cancer patient’s condition.

Our One-Stop diagnostic facilities give you access to all diagnostic tests during your first appointment, including cancer examination, imaging tests, and needle biopsy, etc. According to the latest research, One-Stop Diagnostic clinics can provide a diagnostic accuracy of 99.6%. We provide world-class Cancer Diagnostic facilities by utilizing advanced technologies and procedures. Here we are listing just a few of the technologies, we have just adopted in the One Stop Diagnosis Center:

Histopathology refers to the microscopic examination of surgical specimen or tissue or a biopsy performed by a pathologist. In this procedure, the specimen has been processed and the tissue sections have been placed onto glass slides for examination. Histopathology is further categorized into the following types:

  • Anatomic pathology:

    This medical specialty is concerned with the diagnosis of disease condition based on the microscopic, macroscopic, chemical, molecular, or immunologic examination of organs and tissues.

  • Liquid Based Cytology:

    It is a method of preparing samples for examination in Cytopathology. it allows sample preservation and this sample can be reflexed to further associated tests like HPV DNA analysis.

  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC):

    It involves a procedure of selectively imaging antigens in the tissue or cells section by utilizing the principle of antibodies binding particularly to antigens in biological tissues. It is widely used in the diagnosis of cells abnormality as found in cancerous tumors.

It refers to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and research of blood diseases and cancers. It includes disease conditions like iron deficiency anemia, sickle cell disease, the thalassemias, hemophilia, leukemias, and lymphomas, as well as cancers of other organs. It is further categorized into the following types:

  • Morphology:

    This refers to the histological classification of the cancer tissue, according to histopathological type, and a description of the course of tumor development, i.e. benign or malignant (behavior).

  • Bone Marrow Studies:

    Inspection of bone marrow is regarded as one of the most preferred diagnostic tools for evaluating hematologic disorders. In this advanced technique, a sample of bone marrow is measured for its cells properties, blood, or lymph nodes. Bone Marrow Studies help in diagnosis, therapeutic monitoring, and staging of various disorders such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), hairy cell leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloproliferative disorders, myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple myeloma, etc.

  • Flow Cytometry:

    It is commonly used to measure the amount of DNA in cancer cells. Here, special light-sensitive dyes are used to treat cells and react with the DNA. An abnormal amount of DNA indicates a recurrence in prostate, breast, or bladder cancer patients.

It refers to the diagnosis and investigation of the chemistry of cancer or tumors at the molecular scale, including the development and application of molecular targeted therapies. Molecular Oncology is further categorized into the following types:

  • FISH (Fluorescent in situ Hybridization):

    It is a rapid, sensitive, and targeted technique that bridges the gap between Molecular and Cytogenetics biology. Just like classical karyotyping, it is used as an essential tool for the detection or diagnosis of recurrent genetic defects such as deletions, translocations, duplications, amplifications, and inversions at the molecular level in hematological malignancies as well as tumors.

  • CISH (Chromogenic in situ hybridization):

    This cytogenetic technique combines the chromogenic signal detection method of immunohistochemistry (IHC) techniques with in- situ hybridization (ISH). It is frequently used to diagnose gene amplification in the samples of breast cancers. Besides the detection of cancers, CISH is also useful in detecting viral infections like CMV (Cytomegalovirus) and EBV (Epstein Barr virus).

Various other advanced techniques used in Molecular Oncology are ;

  • Real-Time PCR (RT- Polymerase Chain Reaction)
  • Multiplex Ligation-Dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA)
  • Sanger Sequencing
  • Microarray
  • NGS (Next Generation” or “deep” Sequencing)
  • Cancer Cytogenetics
