Lung Cancer Screening
A low-dose CT scan is quick, non-invasive, and works just like a regular CT scan. There is a significantly lower radiation dose, which decreases the risk associated with annual or more frequent examinations. Utilizing regular lung cancer screening can effectively detect lung cancer in its earliest stages and most importantly, lower your risk of dying from lung cancer.
