We know that routine healthcare isn’t always convenient.
We know that early detection is the best protection when it comes to all types of cancer, which is why for qualifying patients, we offer a lung cancer screening CT that checks for lung cancer, even before there are any symptoms.
Candidates for lung cancer screening CTs are typically:
• A current or former smoker (within the past 15 years)
• Ages 55 – 77
• A person with a smoking history of at least one pack per day for 30 years
When detected early, the survival rate for lung cancer dramatically increases. In fact, some studies show that regular, low dose CT scans of high risk individuals could reduce the lung cancer mortality rate by as much as 20 percent compared to chest X-rays.
