Newswise: Advanced Lung Cancer Screening Available at Atlantic Health System

Advanced Lung Cancer Screening Available at Atlantic Health System

Atlantic Health System

The Atlantic Health System lung cancer test uses low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) that only takes a few minutes to complete and may identify lung cancer at earlier, more curable stages. When compared to chest X-rays used in early detection, the LDCT screening reduces lung cancer deaths in high-risk individuals by 20 percent. The screening test is covered by Medicare and most commercial insurance. Approximately 2% of screenings show early findings of lung cancer.
