Abstract
The present life style which has contributed to ever increasing smokers population and thanks to the pollution in majority of the cities across the country the lung carcinomas are quiet commonly encountered in radiological practice. The stigma through which the person and the family have to undergo before confirming the diagnosis is enormous. So the radiographic methods of diagnosing the malignancies have to improve. Before confirming the diagnosis, the radiologists, the treating physicians should be somewhat confident about the diagnosis so as to prepare the patients and their relatives for the most probable diagnosis before the confirmatory report. The confirmatory procedures include the PET scan and the Histopathology. Both are time consuming procedures and in an economy like ours, finding a PET scanning centre is rather difficult. So this study puts in an effort to find the efficacy of CT in diagnosing a lung carcinoma.
