To identify lung cancer earlier when it is most treatable, researchers have determined a lung cancer screening by low dose CT to be an effective diagnostic tool.
Low dose CT Scanning is a non-invasive, painless test that uses low dose x-rays - similar to those of a mammogram - to view the lungs for any cancer. The test takes little time and is read by a radiologist who reviews the scan. No preparation for the test is needed.
This type of screening is now being recognized and covered by many insurance plans due to its success rate of identifying lung cancer. Our staff will help you with determining whether or not your insurance covers the cost of the scan.
