Pashtoon Kasi: A huge step to be able to see ctDNA results realtime/easy access

Pashtoon Kasi shared a post on X:

As of April 2024, our liquid biopsy ctDNA results show up directly in the electronic medical record of a patient just like any other routine lab. This is a huge step for our patients and all physicians to be able to see these results realtime/easy access.
