Lung Cancer Screening Program
WHAT IS A LUNG CANCER SCREENING?
WOULD A SCREENING BENEFIT ME?
Those who may be eligible include:
- Are you ages 55 to 77 years old?
- Have you smoked in the last 15 years?
- Do you have a 30 pack-year or more history of smoking (this means 1 pack per day for 30 years or 2 packs per day for 15 years)?
If you answered yes to all three questions above, lung cancer screening could be beneficial to your health.
What should I expect with a screening?
We provide a comprehensive approach to assessing lung cancer risk, and screenings include the following:
- Physical evaluation and a painless, non-invasive CT scan
- Results and recommendations within a week of screening
- Ongoing communication with referring physicians
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Contact your primary care physician and ask for a referral. If you need a primary care physician, we can help you find one.
Medicare and many insurances cover lung cancer screening for patients who meet the criteria. Contact your preferred facility for more pricing information.
