Breathe Easier: Lung Cancer Screening Program
A lung screening could save your life
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in men and women in the United States, responsible for more deaths each year than colon, pancreatic and breast cancer combined. Fortunately, it’s also the most preventable. With innovations in targeted therapies, technology and diagnostic tools, we’re applying these significant advancements to detect, diagnose and treat lung cancer.
Take charge of your lung health
If you’re a long-time smoker age 55 to 80, you’re at a higher risk for developing lung cancer. National studies have shown a low-dose CT (computed tomography) lung screening can diagnose early stage lung cancer, when it can be more effectively treated. Early detection is critical.
Benefits of a lung cancer screening
Simple scan with precise capabilities
With precision and quickness, a CT scan can help doctors visualize your lungs with extreme accuracy and detail. Computed tomography uses an imaging device which rotates around your body and a very powerful computer to create cross-sectional images of the inside of your lungs. Our advanced CT scanner offers the optimal combination of low radiation exposure and a short examination time while maintaining high quality images.
