Science and medicine have witnessed a major shift throughout the years and oncology is no stranger to these changes. The diagnosis of a disease and more specifically of a tumor has evolved from the basic histopathological staining and morphological analysis to a more precise identification of receptors and antibodies implicated in the tumor multiplication and more recently to a more peculiar analysis of genomics and molecular markers.
