Are You a Candidate for Low-Dose CT Lung Screening?

Important Statistics:

  • It is estimated that 80% of lung cancers are caused by smoking1

  • 1 in 14 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime.

  • Screening with low-dose CT can help detect lung cancer at its earliest state, resulting in better outcomes.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Low-dose CT is a quick and painless screening tool that uses low doses of radiation, comparable to a mammogram, to make detailed images of your lungs. These images are used to detect lung cancer at its earliest stages.

You can complete a simple survey to find out if you are a candidate for low-dose CT. If you are a good candidate, we recommend talking to your physician about making an annual low-dose CT lung screening part of your preventative medical care.

Medicare and most insurers are currently covering the cost of this study for qualified individuals. If CT lung screening is not covered by your insurance, you can ask for the self-pay fee when scheduling your appointment.
