Lung Cancer Screening CT Program

The Lung Cancer Screening CT Program at National Jewish Health focuses on early detection of lung cancer. Because a screening CT identifies suspicious lesions in high-risk individuals before there are any symptoms, lung cancer can be detected earlier and much more easily treated.

Current or previous smokers should consider getting this important screening.

The 2011 National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) concluded that screening with low-dose spiral computed tomography (CT) scans compared to chest X-ray reduced lung cancer deaths among older, heavy smokers by 20 percent. Improved detection at earlier stages is key to increased survival.

In response to this study, many nationally respected organizations recommend lung cancer screening CTs for high-risk individuals.
