CT Lung Cancer Screening
You may have heard that lung cancer can be hard to detect in its early stages. That's because symptoms of this deadly disease often first appear once the cancer has already spread.
At Sharp, we know that one of the best ways to beat cancer is to catch it early. That's why, with a recent recommendation from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and National Comprehensive Cancer Network, we offer low-dose CT lung screenings to help detect tumors earlier — when they're most treatable. And earlier detection means a better chance of long-term survival.

CT scans are endorsed by the American Medical Association, American College of Chest Physicians, American Thoracic Society, American Lung Association, American Cancer Society and Lung Cancer Alliance. Many insurance plans, including Medicare, now cover these screenings.
Helping you through the screening process.
At Sharp, our experienced team of radiologists, radiographers and caregivers work together to give you a five-star experience with timely scheduling, the latest imaging techniques and prompt reporting of results. And with cancer services accredited by the American College of Surgeons, Commission on Cancer, you can feel comfortable knowing you're in good hands.
And, if needed, our acute-care hospitals — located conveniently across San Diego County — provide a comprehensive array of treatment modalities for lung cancer.
