Screening for Early Detection of Lung Cancer

The most effective lung cancer treatment occurs when cancer is caught early. To help the most at-risk individuals, Crozer-Keystone provides low-cost lung cancer screenings ($125) for qualifying individuals. To be eligible, patients must have a physician’s order and must meet the following criteria:

  • Individuals must be between the ages of 55 and 74 who are current or former smokers with at least a 30 pack year smoking history (a “pack year” is the number of packs smoked daily multiplied by the number of years smoking; therefore, an eligible person could have smoked one pack a day for 30 years; or two packs a day for 15 years, etc.).
  • Former smokers must have quit within the last 15 years.

Patients should not have a history of any form of cancer within the last five years.

To schedule an appointment for a lung screening, call 1-866-5-CK-XRAY (1-866-525-9729), or call one of the nurse navigators at 610-284-8313 or 610-447-2655. To find out more about our lung cancer program, visit http://lungscreening.crozerkeystone.org.
