The CHI Health Lung Screening Program is designed to detect lung cancer and other non-cancer lung conditions at their earliest stages when they are most treatable. If you or a loved one is at high risk for lung cancer, it’s time to learn more and to see if you qualify for lung cancer screening with a low-dose CT scan.
Lung Screening Eligibility
- Aged 55-77 — Coverage may vary based on your insurance
- Current smoker or former smoker who has quit
in the last 15 years and
- Smoking history of at least 30 “pack years”
The American Cancer Society defines 30 pack years as:
- One pack per day for 30 years
- Two packs per day for 15 years
- Three packs per day for 10 years
If you are at high risk, please call your primary care doctor
Low Dose CT Screening
The screening is performed using low dose computed tomography (LDCT), which uses a small dose of radiation to produce numerous X-ray like pictures to create a high-definition image of the lung. This procedure is simple and non-invasive.
To see if you qualify for lung cancer screening, contact your primary care physician.
