TPCA Now Offers CT Lung Screenings!

 

Did you know… Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in both women and men?

 

The National Lung Screening Trial found a 20% decrease in lung cancer mortality rate in individuals who participated in CT screenings. TPCA is proud to announce that we now offer Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) lung screening exams. A LDCT lung screening exam is a non-contrast five minute test designed for high risk smokers. If you meet the following requirements, contact your primary care provider TODAY to discuss screening options.

 

    1. Smoker/former smoker between the ages of 55 and 74
    2. Smoke(d) one pack per day for the past 30 years
