With the advent of Low Radiation Scans, early detection has become an option for cancer patients. While low-dose computed tomography is still at a relatively early stage it provides a window into small lung nodules that, in a small number of patients, serve as indicators of lung cancer in its very early stages.

 

Low radiation scans use about one-fourth of the radiation used in a CT scan. While many of the studies done have employed specific population sampling for their studies, suggestions have been made for specific age groups with smoking habits over a specific period of time.

 

Early detection is a key factor in improving a patient’s possibilities for survival. Prevention through proper habits is the best way to ensure survival so remember to take care of yourself by avoiding tobacco at all costs.
