Now offering low dose lung cancer screening in Missoula

If you’re a heavy smoker or smoked heavily in the past, a lung cancer screening may find issues before you show symptoms. Screening is done with low-dose CT scan and offers early detection for lung cancer. And it could save your life.

Who should get a yearly lung cancer screening?

LDCT is available for all patients who want to be proactive with their health.

A low-dose CT scan is a painless and noninvasive procedure that can find lung cancer when it’s in the early stages. Lung cancer screening finds 80% of lung cancer at an early stage when it is more curable.

Lung cancer screening is highly recommended if you:

  • Are 50-80 years of age
  • Are a current smoker or former smoker who quit in the last 15 years
  • Have smoked 20 pack-years (defined as 1 pack per day for at least 20 years or 2 packs per day for 10 years)
  • You don’t have signs or symptoms of lung cancer (asymptomatic).

Lung cancer screening is a yearly preventive health check.

For patients at high risk, screening is recommended by the American Cancer Society and is fast, easy and painless. It’s also covered by most insurance plans.
