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).
