“She was optimistic when all that was required was surgery. When chemo became the recommendation, she was completely afraid and anxious. Despite immense fear, she remained hopeful and strong, battling like a warrior. I think she was most afraid that the treatment wouldn't work or would do more harm than good.”
— OUR MISSION
Informed Together is a California-based, non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the use of medical imaging in diagnosis and treatment.
We know that there’s an enormous amount of information out there that can be hard to navigate when you or a loved one is going through a medical issue. It might start out easy enough with blood tests, but soon you find yourself in need of a more sophisticated diagnostic tool. In those cases, Informed Together is here to help. We specialize in medical imaging - PET, CT, MRI, X-ray, Mammography, Ultrasound, and SPECT.
We are familiar with the challenges patients and caregivers face when navigating health issues and we know you want the most up-to-date facts to make informed decisions. Informed Together can help you take the next steps in educating yourself on the role of medical imaging in your diagnosis and treatment, as well as locating clinics, vetting doctors, and finding clinical trials.
—A New Generation of Medicine
Medical Imaging holds the power to diagnose diseases from cancer to neurological disorders
Learn more about imaging tools that are commonly used in diagnosis and treatment, specifically Positron Emission Tomography, as well as Ultrasound, X-ray, CT, mammography, MRI, and SPECT. We also provide information on the hottest new trend in medicine - radiopharmaceutical-based theranostics - which provide targeted therapies for disease.
Scientist- and clinician-vetted information
Whether you're seeking an initial appointment, a second opinion, or news on the latest clinical trial, our Facility and Clinical Trial Finder can provide you with the latest information.
The first step to getting care is getting there
Informed Together concentrates its fundraising efforts on providing transportation to and from medical appointments for patients and their advocates by partnering with local community clinics and hospitals. Each year, millions of patients across the U.S. miss at least one appointment due to lack of access to transportation. Donate today to provide a ride for a patient in need.
Science and medicine are constantly evolving and it can be tough to keep up. Informed Together combs through news sources to provide you with the latest on medical imaging and theranostics in a way that connects you with the information and resources you need.
“I would say we got most of our information from our doctor, but we’re not hesitant to get a second opinion. We trusted our doctors, but we did continue to research information to help confirm. And we went into each appointment with a set of questions, a notepad, and together.”
“I have several friends that have had cancer and they want to know what worked for others and what did not. So sharing their experiences is extremely valuable.”
