Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. A low-dose CT scan (CAT scan) is one way to find the cancer in its earliest stages while it is still treatable.

The TGH Lung Cancer Screening Clinic is committed to helping create lung cancer survivors and lower the impact of lung cancer through prevention, early detection and assurance of optimal therapy. We do so in a patient-centered manner that’s inclusive, diverse, proactive and visionary. Through multidisciplinary collaboration, we are committed to offering individualized, evidence-based care through lung screening and management. Years of clinical research, including the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial (NLST), has demonstrated that, in certain high-risk individuals, a well-coordinated approach to lung cancer screening can save one in five lives from lung cancer.
