A lung scan can save the life of a smoker by detecting issues earlier than other screening methods. If you or someone you know has smoked for a long time, encourage them to talk with their doctor about a Lung Scan, also called a Low Dose CT lung scan. This quick, painless scan can detect cancer much sooner than traditional x-rays. Learn more about the screening at a free seminar hosted by Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg, a designated lung cancer screening site, and Dr. Jakob Schutz, radiologist. This free event will offer free refreshments and great conversations with important insights from Dr. Schutz.
Lung scans find problems before there are symptoms.
