Low-dose computed tomography
Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare offers low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screenings for patients who meet specific criteria to enhance early detection of lung cancer and to reduce mortality among smokers.
Lung screening examinations are tests performed to find disease before symptoms begin, with a goal of detecting disease at its earliest and most treatable stage. Using LDCT scans to screen smokers for lung cancer reduces the risk of death by 20 percent versus those screened by a chest X-ray, according to a National Cancer Institute study. For high risk individuals, the benefits of early detection far exceed the risks of low-dose radiation.
To participate in the screening, you must obtain a low-dose lung cancer screening order form and make an appointment with your primary care physician to have a Shared Decision Making session. Your physician will explain the risks and benefits of the study.
High risk individuals must meet the following criteria:
- Be asymptomatic
- 55-77 years old
- Have at least a 30-pack year smoking history
- Currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years
For more information, talk to your doctor.
