Who can participate in the Swedish Lung Cancer Screening Program?
We are offering spiral CT lung-cancer screening to individuals who agree to clinical study requirements and meet certain criteria. Candidates must be: • Aged 40 or older • Current or former smokers with at least 20 “pack years” of smoking history • People who have a primary-care physician (we can help you find a doctor, if needed) • Willing to complete a brief health-history checklist • Fit enough to undergo surgery • People with no recent symptoms associated with lung cancer How much does the screening test cost? Spiral CT scans for lung-cancer screening are not currently reimbursed by most insurance plans. The $300 fee represents a substantial reduction in customary charges and is due at the time of the appointment. How do I schedule a test or get more information? We would be happy to talk with you further about this program. For more information, call our office at (206) 292-7700; e-mail inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org.
