Find lung cancer at an earlier stage when more treatment options are available
A Low Dose Lung CT (LDCT) scan can save your life, especially if you are a current or former smoker.
Look for to our risk assessment checklist below to see if you’re at a higher risk, or follow the link to a “Lung Cancer Risk Calculator.”
You may be covered by insurance if:
You are between the ages of 55-77
You show no symptoms of Lung Cancer
You have a 30 pack-year smoking history (1 pack per day x 30 years = 30 pack years, ½ a pack per day x 60 years = 30 pack years, Calculate your pack year here)
You are a current smoker, or have quit within the past 15 years
Most importantly, you must talk to your Doctor to see if an LDCT Scan is right for you, and ask about the following things:
- The benefits and harms
- The importance of an annual LDCT lung cancer screening
- The importance of quitting smoking, and ways to help you quit
About the Scan
The scan takes approximately 15 minutes, during which you will lie on a table that slides in and out of the ring of this CT Machine. Multiple photos will be taken of your lungs, which are then combined to give a detailed image that our radiologists can observe and study.
The scan is painless, and our experienced technologists will be with you the entire way.
