To select column type and precision and scale:
select t.name as table_name, c.name as column_name, y.name as [type_name], c.precision, c.scale
  from sys.tables t
		inner join sys.columns c
	on t.[object_id] = c.[object_id]
		inner join sys.types y
	on c.system_type_id = y.system_type_id
 where t.name = 'your_table_name_here'
   and c.name = 'your_column_name_here'
--   and y.name = 'decimal'
--   and c.precision = 18
--   and c.scale = 0
