“Over 70 percent of diagnostic and treatment decisions made by doctors are based on medical laboratory test results. Lab results give us the ability to identify diseases in their earliest stages so that we have a better chance of treating people effectively. In addition, lab tests are the keys to finding possible cures for diseases.”
–John Eble, MD, MBA, Chair, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
