LOW DOSE CT LUNG SCREENING
CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple, cross-sectional images or pictures of the inside of the body. Low-dose CT or LDCT uses less ionizing radiation than a conventional CT scan.
Individuals who have a high risk of developing lung cancer but no signs or symptoms of the disease undergo LDCT scanning of the chest.
