Annual screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT) can find lung cancers in their earliest stage, when the cancer is most easily treated. A large national study involving more than 50,000 participants
showed that annual screenings using a low-dose chest CT can reduce the risk of lung cancer death by 20 percent in current and former heavy smokers, compared to those who were screened using a chest X-ray.
Community Health Imaging Centers is an American College of Radiology (ACR) designated center for lung cancer screening. The ACR designation recognizes the Community Health Imaging Centers Lung Cancer
Screening Program for meeting the highest standards in providing safe, effective diagnostic care for individuals at the highest risk for lung cancer. Our radiology physicians have dedicated subspecialty expertise in lung cancer diagnostics.
Community Health Imaging Centers provides convenient access to low-dose CT screening for individuals at high risk for developing lung cancer. In addition to imaging, smoking cessation evaluation and counseling is provided as well as follow-up treatment, if needed.
