Lung Screening

Halifax Health offers a low-cost, life-saving lung cancer screening option for $125*.

The Low Dose CT lung scan provides early detection of lung cancer, even if you may not have any symptoms. Studies show that Low Dose CT scans are more effective at detecting cancerous lung masses than standard radiographic chest x-rays. Therefore, this screening technique, along with physician recommendations and treatment, can reduce the risk of death from lung cancer – the number one cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women in the nation.
*Low Dose CT lung scan may be covered by insurance. If not, out-of-pocket cost is only $125.

Who Should Get a Screening?

  • Aged 55-77

  • Is asymptomatic (they don’t have signs or symptoms of lung cancer)

  • Is either a current smoker or have quit smoking within the last 15 years

  • Has a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 “pack years” (an average of one pack a day for 30 years)

  • Have received a written order from their doctor

Ask your doctor if having a Low Dose CT lung scan is right for you.
