Patients who meet the following criteria are eligible for an annual low-dose CT scan (LDCT) to screen for lung cancer:
These criteria are recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force based on the findings of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), a large scientific study in which LDCT resulted in 20% fewer lung cancer deaths compared to screening with a standard chest X-ray.
This exam is available on our main campus in Boston and at our locations in Waltham, Chelsea and Danvers.
Low-dose CT (LDCT) to screen for lung cancer is covered by Medicare and private insurance plans for qualifying patients.
