Can a radiologist diagnose cancer?
A radiologist is a medical doctor with a special training in reading and interpreting imaging results. Based on the image and interpretation, the radiologist will be able to note any findings that are suspicious of being a tumour.
What kind of scan detects cancer?
There are a plethora of scans that are used to detect cancer, with the most common being CT angiograms, Mammograms, Digital Radiograms, Ultrasonography, and Orthopendogram. Sometimes, X-rays are also used.
Does cancer always show on CT scan?
In most cases, a CT scan will always show if there is a tumour, in addition to its shape, size, and the blood vessels feeding into the tumour. However, there are certain special cases that may or may not show up in CT scans. For more information on this, you can get in touch with one of our experts. Book an appointment today.
Can a CT scan tell if a lymph node is cancerous?
CT Scans are very detailed in their nature, which is why they are a great tool to monitor if a lymph node has increased in size. However, CT scans cannot exactly tell whether tissue is cancerous or not.
Can a CT scan tell if a tumor is cancerous?
CT scans cannot decipher between the nature of a tissue, whether it is cancerous or not. However, they are a great tool to study the change, enlargement, and structure of the tissue to catch anything suspicious. This can then later be investigated further using PET/CT scans that are far more accurate and detailed.
