Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in the United States for both men and women and 85 percent of these deaths can be attributed to smoking. Delaware County has the third-highest lung cancer rates of any county in the state.

Crozer-Keystone Health System offers a Lung Screening Program using low-dose CT scans. The program follows the high risk inclusion criteria as established by the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial.

Results of a recent landmark National Lung Screening Trial, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, show that screenings with a low-dose CT scan can detect lung tumors early and reduce the lung cancer mortality rate by 20 percent for smokers.
