New Pulmonary Screening Program Available
We all know that careful monitoring and early inter vention are two keys to good health. If you agree with that philosophy, are over age 55 and have a history of heavy smoking, you may want to consider a Pulmonary Screening.
A Pulmonary Screening is a low dose cat (C/T) scan of the lung. Covered by most insurances, this screening is Medicare approved and is used to monitor and/or diagnose cancer, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), emphysema and other pulmonary conditions, with the goal of identifying abnormalities early, when they are easiest to treat.
