Low-dose CT Lung Screenings

Low-dose CT Lung Screenings flyerIt’s hard to know what’s going on inside your body, especially if you feel fine. That’s why you should stay up to date on recommended health screenings.

Columbus Community Hospital offers various screenings to help area residents stay healthy, including low-dose CT lung screenings. These checks use minimal radiation to provide a detailed image of patients’ lungs. CCH offers low-dose CT lung screenings for qualified people who are at risk of developing lung cancer but not showing symptoms.

To qualify for these screenings, patients must be:

  • Referred by their physician.
  • Between the ages of 50 and 80 years old.
  • Someone who has a history of smoking at least one pack of cigarettes per day for 20 years, is a current smoker, or has quit within the last 15 years.

For more information and to learn if you qualify for the screening, talk to your physician or call the hospital’s diagnostic imaging department at 402-562-3180.
