Our Low-Dose CT Lung Screening is available for high-risk individuals with a long history of smoking. To be eligible, you must be between the ages of 55 and 77 with 30 or more pack years of cigarette smoking or meet the specific criteria set by your insurance plan.
Having 30 pack years is equivalent to smoking:
- 2 packs per day for 15 years
- 1 pack per day for 30 years
- 1/2 pack per day for 60 years
Former smokers who meet the above criteria and have quit within the last 15 years are eligible for the screening. If you do not meet the criteria but are concerned about your risk for lung cancer, please speak to your primary care provider.
