About Lung Cancer Screening

Screening is looking for cancer before you have any symptoms, which can help find cancer at an early stage when it may be easier to treat. A low-dose CT scan is a special kind of X-ray that takes multiple pictures as you lie on a table that slides in and out of the machine. A computer then combines these images into a detailed picture of your lungs.

A study on early detection of lung cancer found that the low-dose cancer screening test can reduce mortality for those at high risk. If you're a current or former smoker over the age of 50, you could meet the high-risk eligibility criteria.
