Updates in Lung Cancer Screening Recommendations

Finding early signs of lung cancer was once next to impossible, but new studies suggest that screening with Low-Dose CT Scans may help spot the beginnings of this disease in high-risk patients.

A Low-Dose CT Scan may help spot the early signs of lung cancer, when it is easier to treat. The United States Preventive Task Force recommends that smokers with a history of 30 pack years (1 pack/day for 30 years, 2 packs/day for 15) get a
Low-Dose CT Scan every year. This low radiation scan takes just 5 minutes and is painless, with no prep required.

This test is covered by many insurance carriers. Call 603-890-2800 to determine coverage and applicable co-payments if any.
