What is a CT scan of the heart
and lungs?

CT scans of the heart are computed tomography analysis of this essential organ of the human body. Such scans are performed to assess a patient’s heart for coronary artery disease. A calcium-score screening heart test (coronary calcium scan) uses computerized tomography (CT) to detect calcium deposits in the coronary arteries of your heart. A higher coronary calcium-score suggests you have a higher chance of significant narrowing in the coronary arteries and a higher risk of a future heart attack.

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.

What our patients say...

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?

CT lung scans detect all sorts of problems with the lungs and chest. A patient who has lung cancer, an infection, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis or other lung issues will find out about those problems. The low dose CT scan cost won’t bust your budget. Ask your doctor, “How long does a lung scan take?” and you will find it takes half an hour or less.

Let’s take a look at some specific problems that the scan identifies in the lungs.

INFLAMMATION

A CT scan of the lungs helps determine if inflammation is present. If inflammation or another disease of the area that covers the lungs, referred to as the pleura, is found, the stage is set for timely CT lung disease treatment. If a lung nodule is identified in your lungs after the CT scan image is analyzed, it might be the result of inflammation.

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.

TUMORS

CT scans display lung tumors that might not be identified with a routine x-ray of the chest. This scan will reveal the exact position, shape and size of the tumor. The scan also facilitates the identification of lymph nodes that have expanded. Such large lymph nodes might contain cancer that is already spreading or has the potential to spread to other body sites. The beauty of this approach is it is a non-invasive body scan, meaning there is no need to perform an incision into the patient’s chest.

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.

INFECTIONS

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.

LESIONS

CT scans reveal much more detail than ultrasound images yet they are not advanced to the point that they can pinpoint cancerous tissue 100% of the time. CT scans sometimes reveal lung nodules that are abnormal areas within the chest. Such nodules are displayed as small tissue masses within the lungs. The average lung nodule is 0.2 inches to 1.2 inches in size. Again, lung nodules can be benign and only require imaging surveillance every 6-12 months

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.

TUMORS

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.
