What You Need to Know About Lung Cancer Screenings

A LDCT lung screening is a non-invasive medical test that uses a reduced radiation dose and is designed to find small lung masses (nodules) that may be the earliest sign of lung cancer. The CT scan detects potentially pre-cancerous lung nodules more effectively than regular chest x-rays. Click here to learn more information about a low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening.
