Testing & Diagnosis
Undergoing testing and awaiting a diagnosis can be a long, drawn-out, and oftentimes stressful process. At Texas Liver Tumor Center, we aim to diagnose you as quickly as possible so you can get started on your treatment plan straight away.
Testing and diagnostic procedures we offer include: MRI and CT imaging, magnetic resonance elastography, liver function testing, liver biopsy and genetic testing.
We offer a full scope of treatment options for your condition, as well as access to cutting-edge research and clinical trials through our partnership with Texas Liver Institute and UT Health San Antonio.
If you know you are at high risk for developing a liver tumor, whether due to family history or other lifestyle factors, prevention can be vital to helping you reduce your risk.
What to Expect
Our appointments begin early in the morning. Upon checking in with our reception team, a patient will receive a personalized schedule for the rest of the day. The precise agenda will be tailored to the patient’s unique needs, but appointments typically include:
- Blood work and imaging tests performed and processed on site by our experienced pathologists and radiologists
- One-on-one consultations with our hepatologists, oncologists, surgeons, dietitians, social workers, and other liver tumor specialists
- Tumor Board: an afternoon session during which our medical professionals will hold a multidisciplinary meeting to collaboratively determine the best approach for treatment, after which the patient will be given materials to help them understand their diagnosis
- Consultations with our interventional radiologists or transplant physicians, if needed
At the Texas Liver Tumor Center we strive to provide an exceptional level of comprehensive care and hepatology services in a patient-centered environment.
Each patient may see up to five physicians during their visit. Every patient has an evaluation by the hepatologist from the Texas Liver Institute, the Premier group in Texas providing hepatology care, as well as our experienced medical oncologist. Our cancer doctors specialize in hepatobiliary cancer and are renowned in their field.
The Texas Liver Tumor Center takes a concierge approach to each patient’s care. We are driven by patient care to have your imaging and blood drawn by our experienced medical technician so that your results will be available for review within an hour. Snacks and beverages are provided to make your visit more comfortable.
