Lung CT screening
Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer. Early lung cancers generally don’t cause symptoms, making detection difficult.
CT screenings can identify nodules or extra masses of cells growing on your lungs, which may be an indication of early lung cancer.
If you are age 50 or older and have a history of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years or more, consider a lung screening.
Your primary care physician may refer you for a screening, or you may schedule one directly. However, you must have a primary care physician for follow-up care.
Call 262-928-2745 if you need help finding a primary care physician. Or call 262-928-7760 and a nurse will discuss the additional eligibility requirements to help you determine if a screening is right for you.
Heart CT screening
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. If you’re at risk, a low-dose CT heart screening could help detect issues earlier.
The CT heart screening is right for you if you’re 30 to 45 years of age with two or more heart disease risk factors, or over 45 with at least one heart disease risk factor. Risk factors include a family history of heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and diabetes.
A physician referral is not required. To schedule an appointment, call 262-928-4624.
