Did you know that 2,400 Canadians will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer each year and 2,300 will die from it?
Thanks to you, more research into diagnosing and treating patients with esophageal cancer will be possible at London Health Sciences Centre's, London Regional Cancer Program. We are truly grateful for your dedication and support to this cause.
Your efforts have also contributed to the purchase of a new ultrasound machine.
The prognosis of esophageal cancer is strongly associated with its stage. As a result, accurate clinical staging is critical for selecting appropriate treatment options. Endoscopic ultrasounds play a central role in the initial staging of esophageal cancer and may also be useful for detecting disease recurrence.
“We perform several ultrasounds per day,” Dr. Malthaner says. “They are now almost as common a diagnostic tool as stethoscopes – but with many more capabilities. They allow us to properly diagnose our patients so that we can avoid surgery when possible to provide the least invasive interventions. The Insley family’s generous support makes this possible."
