CT Lung Cancer Screening
About Lung Cancer Screening Program
More people in the US die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. This is true for both men and women. Until recently there has been no reliable way to detect lung cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage.
National Study Published
A recent landmark national study, published in August 2011 in the New England Journal of Medicine, reported that using low-dose CT scans can detect tumors early and reduce lung cancer mortality by up to 20 percent in high-risk smokers and ex-smokers. Based on these findings, ImageCare Medical Imaging launched a lung cancer screening program that uses low-dose CT scans to detect the smallest possible tumor. With these findings, the specially trained thoracic radiologists at ImageCare can provide patients with guidance through diagnostic evaluation, long term follow-up and, if needed, guidance on treatment.
