CT Screening for Lung Cancer
Are you 50 years of age or older with a history of smoking? - You can schedule
a CT scan that could save your life!
If you've ever been a smoker, or smoke now, you're certainly concerned
about your health risks. Well, here is some good news: CT screening can
reduce your risk, through early detection of lung cancer, in its early,
most treatable stage.
Recent clinical trials have confirmed that CT screening can reduce the
mortality from lung cancer in high-risk people by about 20%. The U.S.
Preventive Services Task Force now recommends that anyone who has 30 pack
years of smoking (one pack a day for 30 years, or 2 packs a day for 15
years) should have annual CT screening.
