CT (Computed Tomography) Machine/CAT Scan
Today’s healthcare environment is about offering new solutions to pressing needs. Humboldt County Memorial Hospital realizes that our providers want to do what is best for their patients, and so do we. For that reason, we want you to know that our facility offers CT imaging with new equipment & advanced technology.
Simple and fast, our CT machine is arguably one of the most valuable diagnostic imaging tools. Yet its capacity to improve the health of the world is far from tapped. It’s designed to support the widest variety of patients and applications. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and is often used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.
Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screenings & Calcium Scoring
These preventative screenings use low doses of radiation to make a series of detailed pictures making it easier to identify the cancer or blocked artery at an early stage so that it can be successfully treated. These scans are non-invasive and only take a few moments to complete.
This high resolution, low-contrast detect-ability scanner has many benefits, some include:
- Up to 82% reduced dose.
- Up to 100% better spatial resolution.
- Up to 135% improved low-contrast detectability.
What is the cost of low-dose lung cancer screening and calcium scoring?
These screenings are self pay. All fees are due at time of service.
Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening = $144
Calcium Scoring = $128
Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening + Calcium Scoring = $195
Who should consider a calcium scoring?
Those at higher risk for developing coronary artery disease should discuss the potential benefits of cardiac calcium scoring with their physicians, who may recommend the exam.
Common CAD risk factors include:
- Family history of CAD Diabetes
- High LDL cholesterol Physical inactivity Obesity
- Tobacco smoking
Who should consider a low-dose lung cancer screening?
Current and former smokers aged 55 and up are at greatest risk for developing lung cancer. All that's needed is a doctor's order.
