Bridgeport Hospital offers a lung cancer screening to those who qualify using a low-dose lung CT screening (CAT scan). This procedure is currently the most effective way to detect lung cancer early, when it’s most treatable. The screening only takes a few minutes to administer. Those at high risk who might qualify for the screening include anyone between the ages of 50 and 80 years with the following:

  • History of smoking a pack a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years
  • Are current smokers or quit within the past 15 years

To find out if you qualify for a lung cancer screening or to make a referral, please call (203) 384-3904. All calls are kept confidential.

Listen to an interview with Oncologist Justin Persico, MD, explaining the benefits of this screening and who may qualify.
