Who should get an LDCT lung screening exam?

The Premier Health Cancer Institute physicians decided to use the National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s (NCCN) guidelines. This decision was made to be consistent with national guidelines for LDCT screenings. The Lung Cancer Screening program is available only for people at high risk for lung cancer. This includes people between the ages of 55 and 80 who are current smokers or quit within the last 15 years and have smoked at least one pack per day for 30 years, two packs per day for 15 years, or the equivalent and do not have any signs or symptoms of lung cancer and have never had lung cancer before.
