Lung Cancer Screening

The Importance of Lung Cancer Screenings

Lung cancer screening is a yearly imaging test that can find cancer before you have symptoms.   

When lung cancer is detected early, there are more treatment options available, offering the best chance for a successful outcome. 

Fox Chase Cancer Center offers lung screenings using low-dose CT scans that take less than five minutes, can be done in regular clothing, and do not require injections. Our physicians will review the test results for signs of lung cancer, and you will learn the initial results on the same day as the scan.


You may be eligible for a yearly lung cancer screening if you meet all of these criteria:

  • You are between the ages of 55-77
  • You are an active smoker or quit within the past 15 years
