Advanced diagnostic methods

Mayo Clinic doctors are respected for their expertise in diagnosing Ewing sarcoma. Though this is a rare type of cancer, our experts have extensive experience in caring for people with Ewing sarcoma.

Mayo Clinic experts offer:

  • A prompt and accurate diagnosis. Mayo Clinic pathologists are experts at diagnosing rare tumors, including Ewing sarcoma. Specially trained pathologists with experience diagnosing this type of cancer are essential to getting a correct diagnosis.
  • Technology to improve treatment planning. Mayo Clinic surgeons often use 3D models of the tumor and nearby structures to help determine in advance the best way to approach tumor removal. These models are developed by advanced technology that takes information from a CT scan, and layer by layer, prints out a 3D model.
