Lung Cancer Screening

Early detection of lung cancer is the most powerful way to reduce the risk of death from this disease. A lung screening CT scan can find lung cancer before symptoms develop and the cancer spreads.

Vanderbilt’s Lung Cancer Screening Program offers yearly lung screening computed tomography (CT) scans for patients who are at high risk of lung cancer because of age and/or smoking history.
