Lung Cancer Screening

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death because often there are no symptoms until its has spread. The good news is a lung cancer screening can help detect it early when there are more treatment options. Northside Hospital Cancer Institute offers a low dose CT screening if your 55 – 77 years old and a current or former smoker. Our low dose CT (LDCT) lung screening technology is an evidence-based approach utilizing the guidelines set by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
