Today we talk to Amanda Nolan, Director of Radiology at Lima Memorial Health System. Lima Memorial wants to remind you that if you are at risk for lung cancer, talk to your primary care physician about a lung screen that can detect abnormalities at their earliest, most treatable state. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women, and most often, lung cancer is diagnosed when symptoms present. At this point, the cancer is at an advanced stage with a five-year survival rate of only 15 percent. If you are ages 55-77 and an active smoker or with a significant smoking , take the important step to talk with your physician about the benefits of this screening and turn to Lima Memorial for your low dose CT screening exam. Lima Memorial’s team of board-certified physicians. with the help of revolutionary lung cancer diagnostic equipment, can help detect, diagnose and treat lung cancer at its earliest stages, when there’s a much better chance of curing it.
