What Should I Expect During a Screening?

A very detailed picture of the lungs is critical for detecting lung cancer. Computed Tomography Scans, commonly called CT scans, use both x-rays and computer images to visualize every segment of lung tissue.

 

The test is not invasive or painful and generally doesn’t take long. The radiation emitted by the CT scan is equivalent to the amount you receive from going outside regularly and most experts consider it very safe.

 

During the CT scan, you will be asked to remain very still. The person administering the test will position you and let you know when the test is complete, however they will not read the results.

 

Once the results of the CT scan are interpreted by a Radiologist, they will be sent to your Medical Professional. At this time, you will have a follow up call or appointment to discuss whether you need additional testing or treatment.
