CT Lung Cancer Screening Program

Lung cancer is the #1 one cancer killer in America, taking more lives than colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. Every year, 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with lung cancer and 160,000 die from it. However, early detection of small lung cancers can increase the 5-year survival rate by up to 90%.

The Low-Dose Computer Tomography (LDCT) Lung Cancer Screening Program at UMass Memorial Health provides regular screenings to patients who are at risk for developing lung cancer. Through LDCT examinations, we can proactively and safely screen patients for this disease.
