Lung Cancer Screening Program

Lung Cancer Screenings Provide Patients with Early Detection Results

Lung Cancer Screening

Computed tomography (CT) imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that produces detailed 3-dimensional computer images that are more reliable in detecting early lung cancers. A low dose CT scan for lung cancer screening offers less radiation as compared to a standard dose CT scan.

Improved Outcomes for High Risk Patients

Because it is difficult to detect and often only found after the disease has spread, lung cancer causes more deaths in men and women than any other cancer. The National Cancer Institute recently completed National lung screening trials which used CT lung cancer screening for high risk patients, including those 55 – 74 years of age, who also meet specific criteria. Those at high risk are screened with low dose CT as opposed to standard chest x-ray, showing improved outcomes for early detection and a reduction in lung cancer deaths.
