KSB Designated as Lung Cancer Screening Center

CT Lung cancer screening is a process that uses imaging to detect the presence of lung cancer in otherwise healthy people with a high risk of lung cancer. Lung cancer screening is recommended for older adults who are longtime smokers and who don’t have any signs or symptoms of lung cancer.

Doctors use a Low-Dose Computerized Tomography (LDCT) scan of the lungs to look for lung cancer. If lung cancer is detected at an early stage, it’s more likely to be cured with treatment.

Who Should Get Screened?

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends yearly lung cancer screening for people who:

– Have a 20 pack-year or more smoking history
– Smoke now or have quit within the past 15 years
– Are between 50 and 80 years old.

Discuss the benefits and risks of lung cancer screening using LDCT with your primary care doctor.

Working together will help you decide whether screening is right for you.
