What is CT Screening?
Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a diagnostic test that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to create cross-sectional images (often called slices), horizontally and vertically, of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of the
bones, muscles, fat, blood vessels and organs.
As a result, CT scans are very detailed and help physicians diagnose many conditions that may not be as easily diagnosed with other imaging methods like X-ray or ultrasound.
If your CT lung screening reveals an abnormal pulmonary nodule (growth on the lung), you may be referred to Beaumont’s Lung Nodule Clinic,
where multidisciplinary teams of experts provide early diagnosis and expedited care for lung nodules.
