Early Detection of Lung Cancer
The only recommended early detection test for lung cancer is low-dose computed tomography (also called low-dose CT). It is a test that is recommended for people who are smokers. In this test a computerized axial tomography machine scans the body and uses low doses of radiation to generate detailed photos of the lungs. The Metropolitano Hospital has a low dose TAC at its hospital in San José. The 128-slice multidetector equipment allows 3D reconstructions to generate clearer and more accurate diagnoses.
