University of Virginia (UVA) Health Reduces Low-Dose Lung Screening Patient Dose by 50% with No Degradation in Image Quality

UVA-health-case-study

Low-dose CT for lung screening is currently the only recommended procedure for lung screening by the CDC. It has been proven to reduce lung cancer-related deaths and patient eligibility has recently been expanded.

Even when following medical guidelines for low-dose CT lung screening, the cumulative effects of repeated x-ray exposure may cause irreversible damage. Therefore, low-dose lung screening programs must use a low enough dose so that patients who receive repeat CT screening exams are not exposed to an increased risk of ill effects from the screening exam itself.
