Common Investigations For Lung Cancer Summary

Mr. Marco Scarci, a consultant thoracic surgeon, explains common lung cancer investigations in his video. Essential tests include a CT scan with contrast for staging, PET scans for detecting rapidly replicating cells, and lung function tests to assess operability. Diagnostic procedures such as CT-guided biopsies and bronchoscopy, including endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) for sampling lymph glands, are also discussed. These investigations help diagnose and stage lung cancer accurately, allowing for tailored treatment plans. For more information, visit Marco Scarci’s website .
