Lung Cancer Screenings

Orange Regional Medical Center offers a lung screening program to evaluate for early signs of lung cancer.  Our program is under the direction of Cleveland Lewis, MD, Board-certified Thoracic Surgeon and Medical Director Lung Tumor Site & Oncology Quality.

A Low-dose CT Scan Could Help Save Your Life

The screening is done using Low Dose Computed Tomography. A low-dose CT or LDCT uses less ionizing radiation than a conventional CT scan, and is a non-invasive procedure that is effective in detecting the earliest stages of lung cancer. A LDCT is recommended for individuals with a high risk of developing lung cancer. Performing these screenings annually previous to any signs or symptoms of lung cancer can lower or reduce your risk of death.

This can be performed on patients who meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • 55 – 77 years of age.
  • Must be asymptomatic (they do not have signs or symptoms of lung cancer).
  • Either a current smoker or have quit smoking within the last 15 years.
  • Tobacco smoking history of at least 30 “pack years” (an average of one pack a day for 30 years).

If you are age 50 to 54 and have an additional risk factor in addition to a 20 pack year smoking history, such as asbestos exposure, please call to find out whether you are eligible based on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines.
