Low-dose spiral CT scan

Low-dose spiral CT scan: A low-dose spiral CT scan is a type of imaging technique in which a computed tomography (CT) camera spins around the body (e.g. chest), taking over a hundred pictures. Combining these pictures into an image of the chest, the low-dose spiral CT scan can detect very small, possibly precancerous lung nodules that can be missed on a conventional chest x-ray.
