Sophisticated hematological investigations and diagnostics are also carried out on-site, including bone marrow testing and spinal taps.

They are generally delivered either orally or through peripheral intravenous or central venous catheter administrations.

In every case, hemato-oncologists will assess the best way to treat an individual patient’s cancer, determining the optimum method and the necessary course of treatment.
