Cancer Diagnostics & Treatment

Bozeman Health Cancer Center promotes a team approach to oncology care. We employ some of the latest diagnostic technology available, such as the most recent mammography equipment, CT scanners, and the latest platform linear accelerator with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) technology. Bozeman Health's expert cancer team also includes surgeons, radiologists, urologists, OB/GYNs, gastroenterologists, dermatologists, palliative care physicians and pathologists working together to effectively diagnose and treat cancer wherever it strikes.

Understanding that treating cancer is not solely about providing medical treatment, Bozeman Health Cancer Center provides patients with the assistance of social workers, financial case manager and clinical patient navigators specializing in medical oncology, radiation oncology, breast care and radiology to guide patients through their treatment.

PET / CT

PET/CT combines two scans–Positron emission tomography (PET) and computerized tomography (CT)–in one exam. CT scans detect changes in anatomy, such as size, shape and exact location of a tumor. PET scans allow a physician to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue or between benign and malignant tumors at a very early stage, often before these changes are otherwise apparent. Together, the two procedures provide information about the location, size and type (malignant or benign) of lesion. PET/CT scans allow physicians to pinpoint the location of cancer within the body before making treatment recommendations or to evaluate treatment response.
