Catching Lung Cancer Early is Key to Survival
Early Detection of Lung Cancer is a Key Factor to Living a Longer Healthier Life
Facts about Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the United States and is responsible for more deaths than any other type of cancer. According to the American Lung Association, lung cancer screening with low-dose CT scans can help detect lung cancer at an early stage when it is the most treatable.
When lung cancer is detected early, it is much easier to treat and has a better prognosis. The American Lung Association reports that if everyone who is eligible for lung cancer screening were to get screened, more than 25,000 lives could be saved each year.
How Virtual Imaging, Inc. Can Help Detect Lung Cancer
At Virtual Imaging, Inc., we use the latest technology to perform low-dose CT lung scans for our patients. Our advanced imaging equipment delivers precise, high-quality images that allow our radiologists to identify small nodules or other signs of lung cancer that may not be visible on a traditional X-ray.
One of the biggest advantages of low-dose CT scans is that they use a much lower radiation dose than traditional CT scans. This means that patients are exposed to less radiation, which is especially important for patients who may need to undergo multiple scans over time. The low radiation dose also makes the procedure safer for patients who may be at a higher risk for lung cancer, such as current or former smokers.
If you are a current or former smoker, or if you have other risk factors for lung cancer, such as a family history of the disease, give us a call at 770-730-0119 to discuss your options and how a low-dose CT scan might be right for you. Early detection is key to successful treatment of lung cancer.
