Lung Screening Criteria

The low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) shows a 20 percent reduction of lung cancer mortality than those screened with a chest x-ray, according to results of the National Lung Screening Trial.

St. Charles Cancer Center offers an LDCT program.

To be eligible, you must:

be 55-74 years old

be a current smoker or have quit within the past 15 years

If you meet the above criteria and are interested in participating in a free lung screening, complete the form on the right and our cancer screening coordinator will assist you in signing up.


How much does it cost?

The initial screening is free of charge thanks to the partnership between St. Charles Foundation and Central Oregon Radiology Associates along with donations from our generous community members.

How often do I need to be screened?

The program offers an annual screening for three years. The initial screening is free.* This does not include any follow-up that may be recommended in between the annual screening.

*Visits to your family doctor before or after the procedure, subsequent tests and any necessary treatments are not included.

What if follow-up is recommended?

The results will be given to your primary care provider who will review them with you and determine a follow-up plan. Any additional follow-up scans ordered will be eligible to submit to your health insurance.

What if I don’t have a primary care provider?

We can help locate a primary care provider from a list of clinics that offer services on a sliding scale fee based on income.
