Lung Cancer Screening

St. Joseph Hospital has been designated a Lung Cancer Screening Center by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This designation recognizes St. Joseph Hospital's commitment to practicing safe, effective diagnostic care for individuals at the highest risk for lung cancer.

St. Joseph Hospital offers a state-of-the-art Lung Cancer Screening Program that includes using low-dose CT scan, community education and a personalized treatment plan for patients at high risk for lung cancer.

Low-dose CT scans and appropriate follow-up care can significantly reduce deaths associated with lung cancer. Screenings are recommended for adults aged 55 to 80 years who have a 30 pack-year smoking history and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years.
