Lung Cancer Screening Program
Studies show that screening is a valuable tool for detecting lung cancer
at its earliest and most treatable stages. The U.S. Preventive Services
Task Force — an independent volunteer panel of national health experts
— recommends low-dose CT scans for those at “high risk.”
Talk with your doctor about whether or not a scan is right for you or
someone you love.
- Between 55–77 years old
- Asymptomatic (no symptoms of lung cancer)
- Tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack-years. (Pack years = number
of packs per day multiplied by years smoked.)
- Current smoker or one who has quit smoking within the last 15 years
