Cancer Care - Northside Hospital

There is no doubt that early detection is key to the successful treatment of cancer. This is why we make getting the cancer screenings you need as convenient, affordable and accurate as possible.

To do this, we offer eleven convenient imaging locations throughout north metro Atlanta with extended hours to meet your needs. At each of these locations you’ll find state-of-the-art technology, certified, compassionate technicians and board-certified radiologists. See RADIOLOGY for a complete listing of locations.

In addition, we offer special community outreach and screening programs designed to reach individuals who are at a higher risk of cancer, and our free annual screenings help those most in need.

Lung Cancer Screenings

Northside Hospital will be offering lung screening for eligible candidates at a discounted rate.
