Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center

If you’re at risk for lung cancer, we offer low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening — the only recommended screening test for early detection of lung cancer. Low doses of radiation are used to create detailed images of your lungs. To be screened you’ll need a referral from your primary care provider. LDCT screening is covered by Medicare and most private insurance plans.
