At Clearview Cancer Institute, the same expertise you find at national cancer centers is available right here. As a preferred clinical trial site among leading researchers, Clearview stays at the forefront of effective treatment options. Our focus on patient convenience means that everything is under one roof. And we’re committed to caring in a way that makes any medicine work harder.
Clearview Diagnostic Imaging conducts the studies needed to monitor your cancer and its response to treatment. It is important when having studies done at our imaging center that you wear comfortable clothing and remember to bring a list of all the medications you are currently taking. Please note that your timeliness prevents delay or possible re-scheduling of your tests.
When you are receiving chemotherapy treatments, drink at least 8–12 eight-ounce glasses of fluids the day prior to treatment, the day of treatment and the day after treatment.
Dress in layers such as sweaters or jackets which may be removed if you become warm or put on if you become cold.
If you are cold, ask a volunteer for a blanket from our blanket warmer.
Wear front button shirts if you have a central venous catheter (port) which needs to be used for your treatment.
Bring only one family member (13 years of age or older) or friend during your treatment.
Please avoid bringing foods with strong odors into the infusion area.
Please avoid wearing strong smelling perfumes/lotions so as to be considerate to other patients’ sensitivities.
Our patients are offered small snacks and beverages at no charge from our hospitality cart that is staffed by our volunteers. We also have vending and soda machines available for you or your family members in our downstairs break room. Please ask a staff member for directions.
