Sarcoidosis – Diagnosis, Treatments & Life Expectancy

CT Scan

A CT or computerized tomography scan combines different X-ray images from various angles to see inside the body. This will help the doctor find out any issue with some important organs that are often affected by sarcoidosis. These include the heart, kidneys, lungs, stomach, and more. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the process. However, some complicated cases might require contrast, which is a special dye to highlight several areas in the final results. Your doctor will interpret the information to help you understand your condition. [2]
