Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S., and the leading cause of cancer deaths.

If your history of smoking has you worried, find out if you are a candidate for our low-dose lung cancer CT screening by taking our online assessment.

Screenings are by physician referral only and follow the eligibility guidelines established by the National Lung Screening Trial:

  • Adults 55 to 77 years of age.
  • Current or former smokers (quit within last 15 years)
  • No symptoms or history of lung cancer.
  • 30-pack-year history of smoking. A pack year is the number of packs of cigarettes smoked daily, multiplied by the number of years smoking.
