The intensive use of HRCT (excessive CT scan) in India during the Covid-19 epidemic has contributed to the early detection of lung cancer cases.

A study conducted on the role of ‘HRCT in lung cancer screening’ by the city-based Grace Cancer Foundation revealed that 51 cases of lung cancer were detected through HRCT tests for Covid-19 by 115 health workers during the first and second waves. Tests were conducted between April 2020 and June 2021.

The test takes on significance as, at present, 70 percent of most cancer cases are diagnosed at the highest levels in the nation and none are detected in the early stages.

The study report said that they have had a total of 51 cases of lung cancer, most of which have primary diseases (single lesion, with Hilary or body tumors). Other accidental lesions were thymomas, tuberculosis, and sarcomas of the chest wall.

While the diagnosis was virtually nonexistent in the general population – non-smokers and non-high-risk individuals – previously, the study showed 0.02 percent incidence among the general population.

“It would be even worse if HRCT(High-resolution computed tomography) was made for high-risk people. There seems to be a direct role for low-grade CT-scan as a condition for screening high-risk people between the ages of 50 and 80.

The largest accident screening study during the Covid-19 will be conducted soon by the Grace Cancer Foundation, ”said Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli, several cancer specialists and CEO, Grace Cancer Foundation, who led the study.

The expected incidence of most cancers in India was 94 out of 1,00,000 male and 103.6 out of 1,00,000 residents by 2020, according to the National Cancer Registry Program, India.

According to its report, it said that one in nine Indian people will develop cancer during their lifetime and one in 68 men will develop lung cancer. The majority of patients with lung cancer were diagnosed with advanced metastasis (distant metastasis) at the time of presentation.
