Breathe Easier for Just $25

A low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scan of the chest helps our multidisciplinary Lung Nodule Review Board detect potential lung cancer earlier when it is easier to treat.

You could benefit from a lung cancer screening if you are age 55 through 80 years old, have a history of heavy smoking, and are either a current smoker or have quit within the past 15 years. Heavy smoking means a smoking history of 1 pack a day for 30 years or 2 packs a day for 15 years. Other qualifying factors include having a family history of lung cancer, being exposed to certain industrial activities or being raised by parents who smoked. The more risk factors you have, the greater your case for screening. 

“The best thing about lung cancer screening is that you have a current picture of your lung health,” says Dr. Greg Dedinsky, thoracic surgeon and member of the Lung Nodule Review Board. “Even if the answer is ‘I’m OK,’ that’s not a bad bit of knowledge.” 

Columbus Regional Health offers this painless and non-invasive LDCT lung cancer screening for $25.
