LUNG CANCER SCREENING LOW

Introduction:

In lung cancer screening, individuals who have a high risk of developing lung cancer but no signs or symptoms of the disease under go low-dose computed tomography(LDCT) scanning of the chest.
CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple, cross-sectional images or pictures of the inside of the body. LDCT produces images of sufficient quality to detect many lung diseases and abnormalities using up to 90 percent less ionizing radiation than a conventional chest CT scan.

Preparation:

There are no pre test preparations for Low-Dose CT Screening for Lung Cancer.
