Saving Lives With Early Breast Cancer Detection
Precision Diagnostics = Early Detection
Screenings help find cancers early, before they spread.
Genetics can identify your inherited risks of cancer.
Analysis can find indicators of disease in the body.
3D advanced imaging scans can detect warning signs of cancers and disease.
Together, these insights provide a clear and detailed picture of your health, enabling you and your doctor to make informed decisions about disease risk, prevention, and management.

The HALO Diagnostics Difference
Getting you from screening to diagnosis, faster
HALO is empowering better health by enabling patients to get diagnosed early and on a precise treatment pathway faster than ever before. This is possible through:
- Advanced imaging and non-invasive tests
- All testing under one roof at a HALO Precision Diagnostic Center
Using this approach, time from screening to diagnosis is faster and more convenient, cutting weeks or months down to just days. HALO also provides support for care coordination so you can spend more time taking care of you.
More than a test center
The First Step in Early Detection
The key piece of our precision diagnostics is the HALO PathWayTM for breast. By streamlining genetic testing and breast imaging, patients get the testing they need. During your appointment, saliva is collected and sent out to be analyzed. The lab results from your saliva testing are combined with your imaging results into a patient-friendly report sent to your doctor. The HALO PrecisionReportTM is an integrated, holistic report providing a 360-degree view of the patient’s condition and hereditary risks. Based on clinical guidelines, the report will also include recommendations and next steps.
Tests with the power to save lives
Take a Stand Against Breast Cancer, Sooner
At your annual mammogram visit done at a HALO Precision Diagnostic Center, you will be asked to spit in a test tube. The DNA in your saliva will then be used for genetic testing. When testing identifies high-risk patients, including those with BRCA gene variants, additional breast MRI screening may be recommended.
This added screening increases the cancer detection rate by three times in high-risk woman.5 Detecting cancer is the first step to an earlier diagnosis. Cancer that is diagnosed earlier also requires less invasive surgery and treatment for improved outcomes.
