Until recently, there has been no reliable way to detect lung cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. However, new findings revealed by the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) show that lung cancer deaths dropped by 20% in individuals who underwent a low dose spiral CT scan compared to those screened solely by chest x-rays.
These findings are the impetus behind the development of our Lung Cancer Screening Program. The Chester County Hospital's team of experts in thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology and radiology have developed a multidisciplinary program to provide early detection and treatment of lung cancer and to educate high risk individuals about the disease.
The fee for this screening is $129*
*Flexible spending funds can be used
A physician prescription is required
