Progressive Diagnostic Imaging now offers a comprehensive ‘Lung Cancer Screening Exam’.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Our ‘Lung Cancer Screening’ exam is designed to help those who have previously smoked and are at risk for developing lung cancer.
As of March 2021, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has expanded recommendations for adult eligibility for screening. Annual Screenings will now begin at 50 years of age instead of 55. Smoking intensity has been reduced from a 30 to a 20 pack a year history. This means patients will be eligible, if they, for example, smoked one pack a day for 20 years or two packs a day for 10 years.
Progressive Diagnostic Imaging always follows the recommendations of the National Lung Screening Trial and the United States Preventive Services Taskforce for determining risk. Please answer the following questions below to determine if you meet the criteria for a painless and quick ‘lung screening’ test that can help detect early signs of lung cancer. We also offer Riverdale NJ Ultrasound Imaging, Early Detection Screenings, X-Ray Imaging, CT Scans, and Open MRI Scans.
