Low Dose CT Lung Screening

Early Detection is the most effective way to beat lung cancer. Low Dose CT Chest Scans are more sensitive than chest X-rays in detecting early stage lung cancer. You are a candidate if you meet the following criteria:

  • Age 55-77 years of age
  • Asymptomatic, no signs of lung cancer
  • Tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years (1 pack year = smoking one pack per day for one year; 1 pack = 20 cigarettes) – 1 pack per day for 30 years – 2 packs per day for 15 years – 3 packs per day for 10 years
  • Current smoker or one who has quit smoking with the last 15 years

Talk to your physician to decide if low dose CT Chest screening is right for you.
