Parker Adventist provides low-dose CT screenings to current, former smokers

Posted

Patients at high risk for developing lung cancer can get free lung cancer screenings in November at Centura Health, Parker Adventist Hospital.

The lung cancer screening program provides low-dose lung CT screenings to current and former smokers at high risk for developing lung cancer. Eligible patients must meet qualifications. Screening can help detect lung cancer in its earliest stage, when it has the best chance of being treating and having the best outcome.

To be eligible, patients must be: a current smoker or someone who quit less than 15 years ago; 55 to 80 years old; you have a 30-pack-year or more history of smoking (multiply the number of packs per day times years smoked; for example the minimum would be one pack per day times 30 years; two packs per day times 15 years; three packs per day times 10 years; etc.); and have a primary care provider who can order the scan.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among men and women, and second leading cause of cancer in the United States. Call 303-269-4500 to schedule a free screening.
