The CT Scan is the reference imaging modality for a detailed and precise study of the lung parenchyma.

Thoracic CT Scan

As a complement to the chest X-ray, the CT scan is the reference imaging for examining the thorax (lung, pleura, mediastinum and heart). With infra-millimetric precision, it allows a detailed analysis of the airways (e.g., trachea, bronchi…), of which it can detect size anomalies, and the lung parenchyma (e.g., bacterial or viral infection, fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, mesothelioma…). Therefore, CT scans can be used to examine and quantify potential smoking-related complications (e.g., chronic bronchitis, emphysema, chronic inflammation, etc.) and can be used when screening for bronchopulmonary cancers (i.e., in high-risk patients) using non-invasive, rapid and low-dose radiation protocols.

 

Using an injection of iodinated contrast media, the CT scan allows the study of the mediastinum vessels, and more particularly in cased of suspected Pulmonary Embolism (e.g., clots) or aortic abnormalities (e.g., dissection, dilatation, atheroma plaque, etc.).
