CT Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, but an estimated 80 percent of lung cancers could be cured if detected at an early stage.* A simple, painless CT lung cancer screening could help save your life by detecting lung cancer at an early stage, when it is most treatable.

If you meet the criteria for High-risk Category 1 below, you may be able to schedule the CT screening without a physician's order. Category 2 requires a physician referral.
