Lung Cancer CT Screening
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. Screening can increase the chances of detecting many forms of cancer at an early stage when it is easier to treat. As part of our comprehensive, team-based approach to providing quality lung care, Firelands Regional Medical Center offers screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT) for people at high risk for lung cancer.
