The radiation dose patients receive during any exam is something our radiologists take very seriously. Each member of our staff has taken the "Image Wisely and Image Gently" Pledge with the American College of Radiology, which states that each patient's CT scan is customized to the patient according to their height, weight and age, to minimize radiation exposure. By following these standards, we are able to claim that CT scans at SDMI are the safest in all of Nevada.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a Lung Cancer Screening if I have Symptoms?
arrow pointing down on sdmi lv website

If you are presenting with any symptoms or previously diagnosed Lung Disease you will need a diagnostic CT Scan as opposed to a screening. Don't Worry, all of our CT Scans are low dose as part of our commitment to ensure patients receive the minimal amount of radiation possible.

How long does it take?

Scans are usually completed in just a few seconds to minutes.

How is the scan done?
arrow pointing down on sdmi lv website

In some cases, a dye called contrast material may be used. The contrast may be administered via an IV or an oral contrast and makes it easier to see structures or organs more clearly on the CT images. During the test, you will rest on a table that is attached to the CT scanner and it will send X-rays through the area of the body being studied. Each rotation of the scanner provides a picture of a thin slice of the organ or larger area.

What can you tell me about radiation exposure?

Each patient is an individual, so radiation doses differ from person to person. SDMI customizes radiation doses for each patient, based on a variety of personal factors. This way, the LEAST amount of radiation is used to receive the HIGHEST QUALITY results.

Any patient that is 65 or older, diabetic, pre-diabetic OR as any renal/kidney issues (ie: on dialysis, kidney failure, chronic kidney disease, organ transplant, etc) will need to have BUN/CREATININE level within the last 6 weeks before having a CT scan with Contrast.  This is for patient safety.
