Physicians & Specialists Performing CT scan For Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer & Asbestosis Patients
CT (computed tomography) scan uses a computer linked to an x-ray machine to obtain detailed cross-sectional images of the inside of the body. Comparing to an x-ray, the CT scan provides a more detailed image and a more effective way of detecting asbestos related lung abnormalities. A CT scan is useful in determining the place, size and shape of the tumor. Doctors only recommend this scan if there are specific symptoms and a history of asbestos exposure.
