Lung cancer remains a leading cause of cancer death in the United States. At the Comprehensive Lung Center at St. Mary’s we provide screenings to help prevent cancer as well as advanced diagnostics to treat cancer should it be detected. Lung cancer screening is available to anyone at high risk. You may make an appointment yourself, or have your doctor refer you.
Screening assists patients to be diagnosed using low dose radiation CT of the lungs at an early, curable stage of disease. Our advanced technologies and minimally invasive techniques for diagnosing and treating lung cancer and other disorders include:
If lung cancer is detected, you might benefit from our minimally invasive Electromagnetic Navigational Bronchoscopy (EBUS), which allows a doctor to biopsy suspicious lymph nodes and nodules by passing a camera-equipped bronchoscope with ultrasound through the mouth and into the lung.
The Lung Center is an integral part of our state-of-the-art Cancer Center and American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer accredited cancer program which also offers cancer navigation, the latest in chemotherapy treatments and radiation oncology technology, clinical research trials, and supportive and integrative programs.
