What is Low Dose CT Lung Screening?


CT lung screening is a CT scan of the lungs using a low radiation dose technique.  It is a screening test which is performed before symptoms begin and in the earliest stage of any potential lung cancer.  Annual screening CT has been recommended for individuals who meet the recommended criteria.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Prepare?

You may be asked to wear a gown during the procedure. You will be asked to remove keys and jewelry from the area being scanned.

Women should always inform their physicians and the technologist if there is any possibility of pregnancy.

What to Expect?

On the day of your first appointment, we will confirm that you are eligible for screening. This may be done by providing documentation from your physician. If you are eligible, we will perform a low-dose lung CT scan, which only takes a few minutes.

Your physician will review the results with you and discuss any additional steps that are recommended.
