With lung cancer, early detection brings better results.
The National Lung Cancer Screening Trial (NLST) provided clear evidence that low-dose CT scans for lung cancer can significantly reduce death caused by lung cancer in heavy smokers. Now, the American Lung Association has come out in support of lung cancer screening for high risk groups.
When you’re fighting cancer, early detection matters.
CT scans save lives. We helped prove it.
The NLST showed there was 20 percent fewer lung cancer deaths among study participants who were screened using helical CT scans.
Have you smoked a pack or more of cigarettes a day for at least 30 years, and are still smoking (or have you smoked 2 packs a day for 15 years?)
Have you quit smoking less than 15 years ago?
If you feel you are at risk, or
have questions, schedule an appointment to discuss screening with one of our doctors.
