Lung Cancer Screening
Schedule a Lung Cancer Screening
Lung cancer screening is a yearly preventive health check for patients at high risk for lung cancer.
Screening is done using a low radiation dose CT scan in order to catch early stage tumors.
Yearly screening is recommended for those who meet all of the following criteria:
- 55 to 77 years old
- Current smoker or have quit within the last 15 years
- Heavy smoker or used to be a heavy smoker (minimum 30 “pack years”)
- Asymptomatic (no signs or symptoms of lung cancer)
Medicare and most private insurance plans now cover the screening costs for high-risk patients.
If you are interested in the screening program, please contact (773) 564-LUNG (5864).
