CT Chest ~ What areas does it cover?


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone 😃 

I have an upcoming CT scan of my chest.  I’m wondering, will the scan cover my armpits/lymph nodes in that area?

I’ve had some swelling and tenderness/pain on the right side, same side the nodules in my lung were located.  So, I just want to make sure that area will also be covered.  I have googled it but I’m not clear on the answer.

Thank you,

Wishing you all a terrific day!

Hi, Carrie, 

May I suggest you shoot a note or make a quick call to the physician who ordered the scan and ask them— I always think going to the source is the best idea. I think it’s especially important to share with them the concern that is prompting  your question.
