Lung cancer screening uses low-dose computed tomography, or LDCT. This “CT” scan uses a low dose of radiation to generate detailed images of the lungs.
Following the screening, Mercy’s team of Board Certified radiologists will review your images to determine if there are any signs of lung disease or cancer.
You will be contacted regarding the results of your screening. If it is determined that there are nodules or other suspicious findings, your doctor will guide you through follow-up testing, diagnosis and any recommended treatments.
