What Does Getting A CT scan look like?
A low-dose CT scan is a quick, painless, and non-invasive approach to screen for lung cancer.
Using no dyes, no injections, and requiring nothing to swallow by mouth, the actual scan itself takes less than a minute to complete. From start to finish, the entire appointment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Biomarker tests can help you and your doctor select a cancer treatment for you. Some cancer treatments, including targeted therapies and immunotherapies, may only work for people whose cancers have certain biomarkers.
