Lung Cancer Screening Program

Atlantic Respiratory Institute provides a lung cancer screening program that is covered by Medicare and other commercial insurance companies.* This test uses low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) that only takes a few minutes to complete and may identify lung cancer at earlier, more curable stages. When compared to chest X-rays used in early detection, the LDCT screening reduces lung cancer deaths in high risk individuals by 20 percent.

Qualifications to participate in our lung cancer screening program include those who:

  • are between the ages of 55 to 77
  • are current smokers or those who have quit within the last 15 years
  • have at least 30 packs/year tobacco history (packs per day times years smoking)
  • have no history of lung cancer

Self-Pay Program

Those individuals who don’t meet the above criteria, but would still like to be screened for lung cancer, can participate in a cost-effective, self-pay option. As part of this program, one of our nurses will conduct a phone screening for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and sleep apnea, and provide tobacco counselling.

Lung Cancer Screening Results

  • All participants will receive a letter explaining the results and interpretation of the LDCT and screenings and follow-up care, if needed.

  • Referring physicians will receive a formal interpretation within 24 hours of the exam.

  • All participants will be entered into Atlantic Health System’s lung screening database, so they can receive annual reminders for follow-up care and notifications of events and programs offered by us.

Lung Cancer Screening Appointments

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 1-844-228-5864. Our nurse navigator is available to assist those who don’t have a physician or a prescription for the LDCT. We offer multiple screening locations for your convenience.

*Patients should call their insurance company first to verify coverage.
