How is the screening done?
Your screening will be done with a low-dose spiral computed tomography (LDCT) scan. This scan is like a regular CT scan, but less radiation is used. You won’t need to drink or inject any contrast in order for the scan to be completed.
What are the benefits of screening for lung cancer?
Screening can find cancer at an earlier stage, when it is easier to treat. Screening may also find diseases in the chest other than lung cancer that may need to be treated.
What happens after the screening?
The results of your scan will be sent to your physician or medical provider.
