Huntsville Hospital Imaging Services offer Lung Cancer Screening CT

Lung cancer kills more people than breast, prostate, colon, liver, melanoma and kidney cancers combined.  Now, Huntsville Hospital is conducting a Lung Cancer Screening CT.

You must have a physician’s order and meet the following criteria:

  • Older than 50
  • More than a 20-pack/year history of smoking

AND one of the following:

  • High radon exposure
  • Occupational exposure to either silica, cadmium, asbestos, arsenic, beryllium, chromium, diesel fumes or nickel
  • Personal history of lung cancer, lymphoma, head or neck cancer
  • Family history of lung cancer

Some insurance plans cover screening costs. For patients who choose to pay out-of-pocket, the screening cost is $250.
