What is a CT scan of the heart
CT scans of the lungs provide a clear look at the lungs, displaying much more detail than a traditional x-ray. The CT lung scan is performed to identify lung cancer as soon as possible and ameliorate its management moving forward. Computed tomography, another name for CT scan, is a diagnostic tool for viewing the lungs without requiring an invasive procedure.

Why should I get a lung
and heart scan?
Every adult should have a lung and heart exam performed, especially if there are problems with lung or heart functionality such as breathing issues, a heart birth defect, or a family history of heart or lung problems. We often don’t worry about things until it’s too late, but if you have congenital heart disease, a heart birth defect, a family history of heart disease, any heart issues, problems with lung functionality such as breathing issues or a family history of lung problems, it is in your best interest to have a CT heart and lung scan test performed. Early detection is the key to reducing your risks.
What can a CT scan of the lungs detect?
Let’s take a look at some specific problems that the scan identifies in the lungs.
Sarcoidosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Wegener’s granulomatosis, and previous lung infections such as influenza (flu) or pneumonia are forms of inflammation within the lungs that have the potential to result in the formation of nodules. However, there is a good chance such a nodule is benign as opposed to malignant.
Cysts that are uniform in appearance after the CT scan tend to be benign. Such cysts merely require ongoing observation. However, if the cyst contains solid components, it has the potential to be malignant, necessitating additional imaging.
A lung infection is cause for concern as it has the potential to cause premature death. Lung infections are particularly problematic in senior citizens and those who are immunocompromised. If your doctor suspects you have a lung infection, a CT scan will be ordered. The scan determines if there are any abnormalities, ranging from empyema to lymphadenopathy and even cavity formations. The CT scan detects underlying conditions, especially if a tumor is identified.
Let’s shift our attention to specific potential problem areas. If you are like most readers, you are wondering, “Which abnormality helps identify lung tissue disease?” Especially large lung nodules are much more likely to be malignant. However, the majority of such nodules identified in CT scans are not cancerous.
Noncancerous nodules in the lungs typically result from prior infections. However, your physician might request that a yearly chest image be taken to determine if the lung nodule expands or otherwise changes as time progresses. If any such alterations occur in terms of shape or size, the physician might advise additional testing.
What can a CT scan of the heart detect?
If lipid plaque builds up in the coronary arteries, it must be identified as soon as possible to prevent blockages that impede blood from moving to the heart. The narrowing of the arteries due to the excess of plaque is referred to as atherosclerosis. Furthermore, the buildup of calcium, cholesterol, and/or fats will collect within arteries, generating such plaque. By getting a CT heart scan, you will be able to identify potential problems before they become untreatable. A CT scan will help you to identify problems such as plaque breaking off or becoming worse and leading to clotting. This is the perfect recipe for a heart attack. CT heart scans are in-depth, to the point that they identify the presence of other problems with the heart. In particular, this scan identifies tumors on or in the heart.
