$69 LC screening - Indiana


Recommended Posts

Lung cancer accounts for more deaths than any other cancer in both men and women. Finding any cancer at an early stage is always best, but especially with lung cancer. Based on the findings released in the 2010 National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), Franciscan St. Francis Health was the first in Indiana and one of the first in the nation to offer a lung CT screening program for the early detection of lung cancer.

The lung screening is safe, simple, non-invasive and results in a minimal amount of radiation exposure. Since smoking also increases the risk of heart disease, a Heart Scan is included for free.

Who should have a Lung Scan?

The screening is recommended for men and women who meet the following criteria:

Current or former smoker between the ages of 55 and 75

Have averaged smoking one pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years (2 packs a day for 15 years, 3 packs a day for 10 years, etc.)

Call 1-877-888-1777 to schedule a screening.

The screening package includes:

Low-radiation dose lung computed tomography (CT) scan evaluated by a radiologist who specializes in lung disease

Heart computed tomography (CT) scan (coronary artery calcium scoring) evaluated by a cardiologist

Easy-to-understand report and educational information

Heart risk assessment
