Getting a lung screen now can make a difference later.
You may qualify for our CT Lung Screening Program if you:
Are between ages 55-80
Are a current smoker or have quit smoking in the last 15 years
Delray Medical Center offers a potentially life-saving opportunity for current and former smokers to be screened for early detection of lung cancer. Yearly lung screening with low-dose CT (LDCT) has been shown to save lives by finding lung cancer early, when it is easier to treat.
What is the goal of CT lung screening?
The goal of the CT lung screening is to save lives by detecting lung cancer early and to help individuals who are at high risk for lung cancer receive a diagnosis and treatment for their disease at an early stage, when it is easier to treat. Without CT lung screening, lung cancer is usually not found until a person develops symptoms. At that time, the cancer may be much harder to treat.
Who should get a lung screening exam?
CT Lung screening is recommended for the following groups of people who are at the highest risk for lung cancer:
People ages 55 to 80.
Current or former smokers with at least 15 years smoking.
Appointments available at the following location:
Delray Medical Center 5352 Linton Boulevard, Delray Beach, FL 33484
Medicare and many insurances cover lung cancer screening for patients who meet the criteria. If your insurance does not cover this screening, you might have to pay for the test on your own. We offer a low-dose CT-Scan for $140, which includes the cost of the screening and the radiologist’s reading fee.
