Lung Cancer Screening
Lung Cancer Screening
Qualified GE CT systems with the lung cancer screening option can be confidently used for low-dose CT lung cancer screening in high-risk patients.
The option includes protocols that deliver low dose, short scan times and sharp images for the detection of small lung nodules.
The GE CT system requirements for lung cancer screening are designed to help ensure that the CT scan can be performed in a single breath by the patient and at a low radiation dose. Based on these goals, and including recommendations from a wide range of professional medical and governmental organizations, all GE 64-slice and greater CT scanners and virtually all GE 16-slice CT scanners are qualified for the lung cancer screening option.
