what is a lung cancer screening?

An LDCT scan (low-dose CT scan) is a preventative health check, like a mammogram or colonoscopy, that creates a detailed 3-D picture of your lungs. While you will be exposed to a low dose of radiation during an LDCT scan, this type of scan uses 75% less radiation than a regular CT scan and does not require any needles. A scan can find something before you know it’s there and before you have symptoms. If you qualify, USPSTF guidelines recommend a yearly screening.2,4,8-11
