Does the CT scan accurately detect cancer / tumors in all abdominal organs including the pancreas? More accurate ultrasound or CT scan? Thank you

Hi Raisasan,


CT-Scan or computerized tomography is an examination to see the body image from various angles and pieces using X-rays (x-rays) and computer systems. The results of the CT scan are in the form of a number of slices and can be adjusted as needed. While the ultrasound examination or ultrasound is an examination using sound waves to get a picture of the body image.


Both of these tests can be useful for detecting tumors, however not all types of tumors can be detected by this examination. In general, CT-Scan has a higher accuracy than ultrasound in detecting tumors / cancer. However CT-Scan also has disadvantages, namely:

Requires more expensive costs than ultrasound
Has a radiation effect
Can cause fear because the examination process requires patients to enter the machine

You should consult directly with the doctor who treats you because of course the doctor who treats you will understand more about the best screening procedure for your condition than just through an online consultation.
