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.
