Hello! My father has been smoking cigarettes for more then forty years. He usually coughs in the morning and wheezing is often heard from his chests. He has recently complained on fatigue and weakness. Since he lost his appetite and rapidly lost on weight his doctor recommended lung perfusion scan. What is a lung perfusion scan?

Hello! Lung perfusion scan is a nuclear medicine test which creates a picture of blood flow through the lungs. It measures the ability of the lungs to take in air and it produces a picture of how air is distributed in the lungs. Normal results show an even distribution of radioactive material in all parts of the lungs. No risk is associated with this test and no special after care is needed.
