What are Biomarkers?

Biomarkers are tests that help doctors diagnose if something is wrong with a person. Biomarkers are based on accepted medical standards and have a range of normal and abnormal values. Once biomarkers are known, doctors can develop a treatment protocol for correcting errant biomarkers and improving the subject’s health.

*An MRI is a common technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves for developing images of soft tissue, such as spinal discs. These images are clearer than those obtained from CT scans.

*A CT or computerized tomography reveals the cross section of any body part, be it bone, muscle, organ, or vein.

*An X-ray can shows fractures, dislocations, tumors, and infections.
