Are you interested in learning about diagnostic centres near you as well as some important facts about HRCT Chest scans? Then this article will be useful to you.

Plain HRCT (High-Resolution Computed Tomography) refers to a CT scan that produces a more precise cross-section image of the lungs than a standard chest CT. An HRCT scan of the chest is an imaging procedure that uses narrow X-ray beams to produce a high-resolution image of the lung anatomy. This test is used to evaluate lung function, detect abnormal growth in the lungs, and detect obstructions to airflows through the lungs.

HRCT Chest is an excellent imaging modality for detecting and characterising any pulmonary focus of infection or non-infectious conditions in febrile neutropenic patients. An exact etiological diagnosis is frequently possible when a specific pattern is recognised with high sensitivity and specificity.

There are several reasons to perform an HRCT test.

  • To evaluate lung function and the risk of developing diffuse lung disease.
  • To look for any abnormal growths in the lungs.
  • To detect airflow obstructions in the lungs
  • To determine the best location for a lung biopsy if one is required.

An HRCT Thorax or HRCT Chest can aid in the diagnosis of lung issues such as tumours, pleural effusion, pneumonia, emphysema, bronchitis, tuberculosis, pulmonary embolism, COVID infection, and so on.

An HRCT Chest Scan takes less than a minute. However, the entire procedure, from preparation to exiting the scan room, may take around 10 minutes.

Pregnant women should notify their doctor (and the x-ray technician) because the radiations could harm the foetus. If necessary, precautions can be taken to reduce the fetus's exposure to radiation.

You may be required to remove any jewellery or metal objects that may interfere with the image.

Unlike other methods of diagnosing bronchiectasis, an HRCT scan allows clinicians to examine the structure of the lungs with greater precision. The diagnostic test is also painless and can be done in a hospital or x-ray facility.

An HRCT (High-Resolution Computed Tomography) chest is typically performed in a hospital's radiology department or an outpatient imaging facility. So, for the best services and reliable results, schedule your test at Ganesh Diagnostic.
