Peoria, IL: Methodist offers screening test for lung cancer


Recommended Posts

If you're a current of former smoker with a concern about lung cancer, Methodist Medical Center is offering a diagnostic test that can provide peace of mind. Beginning March 1, the Methodist Cancer Institute will offer Lunch Check, a screening tool that aids doctors in detecting lung cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage. The Methodist Lung Check is a painless screening and takes only about 30 seconds. Using a Computed Tomography (CT) of the chest, physicians can detect abnormal spots or modules. Many of these are too small to show in a standard X-ray. The cost for the Methodist Lung Check is $175. While the screening cost is normally not covered by insurance, insurance usually does cover the evaluation of any abnormal findings. For more information or to see if you qualify for the screening, call the Methodist Cancer Institute at 671-8296.
