Lung Cancer Screening

Can This Screening Make a Difference for Me?

Until now, lung cancer was difficult to detect until the disease reached advanced stages. This new screening makes early detection possible, a key factor for lung cancer survival. Using a low-dose spiral CT scan, which decreases your exposure to radiation, physicians can more easily identify nodules (potentially cancerous cells) when looking at the internal structure of your lungs.

Am I a candidate for a CAT scan lung cancer screening?

You are eligible to be a screening candidate if you are:

  • Between the ages of 55 and 80, AND
  • Have a history of smoking at least one pack of cigarettes per day for 30 years, AND
  • Are still smoking or stopped within the last 15 years

  • Appointments for a screening can be scheduled by calling 1-855-LNG SCRN (1-855-564-7276).
