Description: Tamara Lobban-Jones talks with Dr. Susan Leclair about understanding cancer diagnostic blood tests. Leclair has over 4 decades of expertise under her belt as professor of medical laboratory science at Dartmouth University and is editor-in-chief at the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science. According to Leclair there are three levels of blood tests critical to a cancer diagnosis. The first level is an introductory- screening test, which includes a common liver and metabolic panel, and is placed in a chemistry setting or a CDC. The second level checks for potential lactic dehydrogenase (LD) leakage and monitors the bloodstream. Finally the third level of testing is typically more expensive, but checks genetic and cytometry data which filters three or four specific diseases. Each blood test should be considered, pertaining to each person’s unique circumstance.
