Computed tomography of the thoracic cavity organs

Computed tomography of the chest cavity organs allows you to accurately determine any pathologies and abnormalities in this area and obtain data for prescribing treatment. CT can diagnose diseases of the heart, lungs, soft tissues, esophagus, and lymph nodes. We offer to do a CT scan of the chest cavity organs at the clinic of JSC "Medicine".

Computed tomography of the chest is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging procedure that can provide detailed information about the condition of internal organs. In 40% of cases, CT shows a result that cannot be determined using a conventional X-ray or ultrasound. The device provides a clear image of bones, muscles, fats.

Computed tomography indications

Computed tomography is indicated in case of suspicion of the presence of pathologies or disruption of the organs in the chest area. It is recommended to undergo a CT scan if you suspect such problems:

  • pneumonia in chronic or acute form;
  • any inflammatory processes in the lungs;
  • the presence of focal formations during fluorography;
  • sarcoidosis, zilicosis, other injuries;
  • aneurysm of the thoracic aorta;
  • pulmonary hypertension;
  • the presence of tumor formations;
  • study of the development of metastases that can spread in the chest cavity;
  • study of the spread of breast tumors to lymph nodes and adjacent organs;
  • traumatic chest injuries;
  • internal bleeding;
  • infectious diseases;
  • unexplained pain;
  • preparation for the operation.

CT allows you to accurately determine the causes of the appearance of pathologies and develop a treatment plan. After the CT scan of the chest, the specialists of our clinic will prescribe treatment and consult you.

Chest diagnostics at JSC "Medicine"

We use state-of-the-art equipment that allows you to perform chest CT quickly and safely. Standard CT and contrast-enhanced tomography are used. The doctor preliminarily examines the patient for an aggressive reaction to the contrast components. If there are no contraindications, this diagnostic method is used, since CT of the chest with contrast gives a clearer result.

The component is not susceptible to X-ray radiation, so the image is clear and detailed. The patient with intravenous contrast is placed on the table, the doctor does the tomography in a separate room. The microphone and speakers will allow communication with the specialist during the CT scan. Our goal is to make your CT scan comfortable, fast and safe.
