Computerised Pneumonia Infection and Early Lung Cancer Screening can precisely identify small, early-stage tumors and generally distinguish between benign and malignant tumors. It is recommended that high risk groups, such as people aged 50 or above, smokers, frequent second-hand smokers or people with a family history of lung cancer, should conduct the low-dose chest examination annually to reduce the mortality risk of lung cancer.

Lung Cancer Screening Procedure

Simply lie down on the CT scanner bed and hold your breath for around 5 to 10 seconds to complete the screening. Fasting is not required before the examination and only a small dose of contrast media is required. The image capture speed is doubled compared to conventional single-source CT scans. 


 The low radiation dose CT scanner with built-in SPS II technology reduces the spectrum width and enhances the imaging effect with very low radiation dose. The method would not pose serious harm to human body, resulting in increased safety, best suit for detecting suspected COVID-19 infection and early-stage lung cancer.

What are the causes of lung cancer?

 Smoking explains the majority of lung cancer risk. Up to 90% of lung cancer patients are smokers. The risk goes up the longer you smoke, and with the majority of men aged 50 or above. Besides, second-hand smoke is also one of the high-risk factors for lung cancer. According to a study, smokers' partners are 30% more likely to develop lung cancer due to second-hand smoke, and nearly 20% of children's cancer cases are related to their fathers' smoking. Moreover, the aging population, air pollution, inhalation of industrial chemicals or construction materials (such as asbestos, methyl ether, etc.) increase the likelihood of having lung cancers. A small percentage of patients have a genetic mutation that gives rise to "lung adenocarcinoma".


 What are the symptoms of cancer?

 Early-stage lung cancer usually has no obvious symptoms, but as the disease worsens, various symptoms will develop, including shortness of breath, hoarseness, dysphagia, persistent cough, blood-stained sputum, pain in the lungs when breathing deeply, repeated or long-unhealed lung infections. Patients may also experience loss of appetite, weight loss and easy fatigue, which are symptoms of lung cancer, although not occurring in the respiratory system.

What should I do if I have a suspected pneumonia infection or early-stage lung cancer?


 Patients can be referred by their family doctor or specialist for a chest X-ray or computerised or computed tomography (CT) scan which are able to diagnose infection with pneumonia or early lung cancer.


 Which test is better for patients with pneumonia and early-stage lung cancer?


 Compared with a lung X-ray, a CT scan can precisely detect small tumors at an early stage and distinguish benign and malignant tumors with a higher accuracy. Long-term smokers aged 55-80 and people who need to rule out early-stage cancers can get doctors' referrals to arrange for an annual low-radiometry lung scan to reduce the mortality risk of lung cancer.


 What is the typical cost of a medical check-up plan?

 re:HEALTH offers a variety of packages for medical check-up, depending on your physical condition and needs. Please leave your name and contact number for enquiries about the check-up fees via WhatsApp. Our customer service team would advise you on the most suitable screening plan for you within a business day.

How long does it take to make an appointment?

 Please make your appointment at least 1 working day in advance. Call (852) 2156 5857 or leave your name and contact number via WhatsApp (852) 6324 5948. We will respond within a business day. Depending on packages, some tests will not require you to fast beforehand, for example, it is not needed for HOTMAN System non-invasive cardiovascular examination, thereby test can be scheduled in the afternoon.


 Is there anything in particular I should prepare for?

 You need to be fasted for eight hours before your blood glucose test, i.e., no food intake in the morning before your examination. Only small portion of water intake is allowed. It is best for women to avoid the check-up during menstruation.
