What is a Lung Scan?

A lung scan is an imaging test that can detect lung cancer in its earliest stages. This low-dose CT scan uses advanced X-ray technology to take multiple pictures of your chest. The pictures are combined to form the clearest possible view of your lungs.

  • Non-invasive
  • Pain-free
  • No use of contrast dye.
  • Extremely low level of radiation
  • Breath held for only 5-10 seconds.
  • Lay comfortably on your back

Benefits of a Lung Scan

Your Lung Scan may reveal nothing at all - and you deserve that peace of mind. The good news is, if cancer is detected, 90% of cases can be treated if found early. Lung Scan identifies cancer 6x earlier than a conventional chest x-ray and, for high-risk smokers, can reduce the chance of dying from lung cancer by 20% over chest x-rays.

  • Annual scans have reduced lung cancer mortality by 20 percent.
  • 1 out of 19 or 20 nodules are cancerous.
  • 90% of lung cancer cases are treatable.
