Are you at risk for lung cancer?
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. About 165,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer each year in the U.S alone. People who undergo a CT lung screening will receive an ultra low-dose CT scan to show the lung tissue in high diagnostic quality detail with a reduced amount of ionizing radiation. Risk factors for lung cancer include being over 45-50 years of age, a history of smoking, and exposure to second-hand smoke and asbestos fibers. Schedule a lung cancer screening online today!
