Been coughing for over 2 years with diminished lung capacity? Do you think a CT is needed?

In brief: Perhaps...

Does your pulmonary function testing show restriction or obstruction? Are you a current or former smoker? What does your chest x-ray show? These are some of the questions i would like to ask before i can answer whether or not you need a ct scan of your chest.
So, see your doctor for further evaluation and ask if you need a ct scan.
