If you smoke, or have quit within the past 15 years, our low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening test could save your life. It helps detect lung cancer early when it's easier to cure. The low-dose CT scan uses less radiation than a regular CT scan and does not require any needles for contrast dyes.
Should I Get Screened for Lung Cancer?
- Are you a smoker or former smoker who has quit in the past 15 years?
- Are you healthy with no personal history of lung cancer?
- Are you between the ages of 55 and 70?
- Did you smoke the equivalent of 30 "pack years" (one pack a day for 30 years, two packs a day for 15 years, or any combination of years and packs that equals 30)?
If you answered YES to these questions, talk to your doctor to see if a low-dose CT lung cancer screening is right for you. If you need a doctor, call our free physician referral service at 580-249-3741.
