Scan is simple, painless and takes just minutes. Identifying
lung cancer in its earliest stages has been nearly impossible
in the past since developing nodules are usually too
small to show up on regular chest x-rays. Now, a low-dose
CT scan can detect small nodules and the early signs
of lung cancer. At this early stage, treatment can dramatically
improve survival of the disease.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in
America. Survival rates have been devastating because
almost 85% of tumors are discovered at a late stage
when treatment can do little to cure them.
Many people with lung cancer do not experience any symptoms
until it is too late. This scan provides a powerful
tool for detecting lung cancer at an early stage.
