When to test

Your doctor may order a low dose CT if you have a high risk of developing lung cancer but you have no signs or symptoms.

Is there radiation involved?

Yes. Same as CT Scan, low dose CT is an imaging test which involves a small amount of radiation to show pictures of the organs, tissues, and bones of the body but it uses approximately 5 times less radiation.

When will I receive my results?

Once completed, you will receive your results within 3-5 business days in your LabFinder portal.
