Lung Cancer Screening CT

In lung cancer screening, individuals who have a high risk of developing lung cancer but no signs or symptoms of the disease undergo low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scanning of the chest.

CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple, cross-sectional images or pictures of the inside of the body. LDCT produces images of sufficient quality to detect many lung diseases and abnormalities using up to 90 percent less ionizing radiation than a conventional chest CT scan.



Lung Cancer Screening CT is performed at the following San Diego Imaging outpatient centers:

San Diego Imaging – Chula Vista

San Diego Imaging – Kearny Mesa
