Liquid biopsy as an aid-in-diagnosis tool for cancer detection in dogs
When a dog is suspected of having cancer, the workup can take many forms and a variety of testing modalities may be needed to arrive at a definitive or presumptive diagnosis. One novel tool in the clinician’s toolbox is liquid biopsy, a test that evaluates a blood sample for the presence of circulating tumor DNA which indicates the current presence of cancer in the body. This session will review the basic principles of liquid biopsy testing and how this technology may be useful as an aid-in-diagnosis. A series of illustrative case samples will be presented, demonstrating how liquid biopsy has been used in the evaluation of dogs with suspected cancer.
