Lung Screening

The American College of Radiology (ACR) has recognized University Center Imaging as a designated lung cancer screening center.

A CT scan, is a noninvasive, painless medical test that combines the use of x-rays with computers to produce images that allow physicians to look inside the patient’s body. A CT can differentiate bone from muscle and fat in the part of the body being examined thereby producing a clear, extremely detailed picture of the body’s internal structures.

The best tool for a lung screening is a CT. This provides detailed, cross sectional views and is able to scan the entire chest in about five to ten seconds. The entire lung screening process will take approximately 15 minutes.
