Objective: assess the prevalence of thoracic aortic calcification and aneurysm in patients in lung cancer screening.
Materials and methods: the retrospective study included randomly selected results of ultra-low-dose computed tomography of 254 patients.
Results: quantitative analysis of aortic calcination by Agatston, Volume, Mass index, as well as qualitative and quantitative analysis of aortic aneurysm occurrence in lung cancer screening was performed.
Conclusion: it is necessary to pay attention to the presence of thoracic aorta calcification and aneurysm in lung cancer screening, as these changes are closely associated with a high risk of cardiovascular diseases leading to death.
KEYWORDS: Aortic calcification, Aortic aneurysm, Ultra-low-dose computed tomography.
