CT Lung Cancer Screening
Lung Cancer is the seconding leading cause of death and the number one cause of cancer death in the United States. Lung Cancer 5 year survival rate is only 15% with more people dying from lung cancer than breast, prostrate and colon cancer combined.
Teaming up with Boone Hospital’s Stewart Cancer Center, the radiologists at Radiology Consultants Inc. have established a Lung Cancer Screening program to fight this disease and improve patient survival by as much as 20 percent. The program consists of providing a low dose CT chest examination to those patients who qualify as high risk for developing lung cancer (listed below). Thanks to the Boone Hospital Foundation’s support, the examination is free to those who qualify. If you would like to learn more about the program and participate in the program please visit the Boone Hospital Lung Cancer Screening website (http://www.boone.org/lung) or call 573-815-2888.
