Lung CT Program

Lung CT Treatments & Services

Screening exams are used to find disease before patients experience symptoms. The goal of lung cancer screening is to detect cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage. Computed Tomography (CT) scan of the chest is used to screen for pulmonary nodules — collections of abnormal tissue within the lungs that may be early manifestations of lung cancer. These nodules are often detectable by lung screening before physical symptoms of lung cancer develop. Early detection of pulmonary nodules has been shown to improve lung cancer survival.
