Take control of your future with lung cancer screening.
What is Lung Cancer Screening?
Studies have found that yearly chest CT scans in high-risk patients discovered cancers early and saved lives. A CT scan creates a series of x-rays that are aligned by a computer to create a 3D image of your lungs. Low-dose CT (LDCT) scans provide much more detail than an x-ray with safer radiation doses compared to conventional CT scans. This allows your provider to detect nodules and lung masses safely and effectively. Most lung nodules are not cancerous and do not need to be biopsied, but they can be early forms of cancer. At Meliora Healthcare, our pulmonologists will determine whether a biopsy is necessary based on the way it looks on the CT scan as well as your risk factors.
