Lung cancer remains a leading cause of death. At Dominican Hospital, our Lung Cancer Screening program allows us to discover if you have a risk of developing the disease before symptoms develop.
A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) showed that screening people at high risk for lung cancer with low dose computed tomography (CT) scans reduced lung cancer deaths by 20 percent. Another study estimates that early detection and treatment of lung cancer could save over 70,000 lives a year in the United States.
Lung cancer screening is not appropriate for everyone. Currently, it is recommended only for high-risk current and former smokers over age 50 with a heavy smoking history, and a family history of lung cancer.
Low-dose Lung Cancer Screening - using low-dose CT scanning as a screening methodology for high-risk current and former smokers - is a service is now covered by Medicare. Our state-of-the-art CT equipment produces a low dose of X-rays with negligible adverse effects. The risks are not much different from those you encounter in everyday life, such as driving or flying in an airplane.
