For those at high risk for lung cancer, a new screening called low-dose CT (LDCT) has been shown to save lives by finding lung cancer early, when it is easier to treat. This screening is recommended for people ages 55-77 who are at high risk for lung cancer. Without LDCT screening, lung cancer is usually not found until a person develops symptoms. Learn more with radiologist James Tramontana, MD. The session will be held at the Fairfield Glade Conference Center. A FREE lunch will be provided with a confirmed RSVP to (931) 459-4262.
