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, even if you are not experiencing lung cancer symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, etc.):
- 50 to 80 years old
- Current smoker or have quit within the last 15 years
- Heavy smoker or used to be a heavy smoker (minimum 20 “pack years”)
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).
