🔹Osteosarcoma Spotlight: Diagnostics 🔹
🔬Cytology, or looking at the cells aspirated from a tumor, can be one of the diagnostic tests used for a pet with suspected osteosarcoma. It is not as definitive as some of the more invasive tests, but a few cells from a fine needle aspirate can be enough for veterinarians and cancer specialists to help distinguish malignant vs non-malignant tumors.
🔬The accuracy rate for obtaining an osteosarcoma diagnosis on cytology is about 70-85%, but other tests may be needed to confirm.
