Lung Cancer Screening Center of Excellence

 

In 2015, LCMH was named a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) for its ongoing commitment to responsible lung cancer screening. Low dose CT screening for lung cancer carried out safely, efficiently and equitably saves tens of thousands of lives a year.

 

Designated Screening Centers of Excellence are committed to provide clear information based on current evidence on who is a candidate for lung cancer screening, and to comply with comprehensive standards based on best practices developed by professional bodies such as the American College of Radiology (ACR), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP) for controlling screening quality, radiation dose and diagnostic procedures within an experienced, multi-disciplinary clinical setting.

 

LCMH is one of only 10 hospitals in the state of Illinois to be designated as a Lung Cancer Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance. The screening consists of a low dose CT scan of the lungs to detect lung nodules. The purpose of this program is to screen people who are at high risk for lung cancer so that it can be identified in an early stage when effective treatment and cure are possible. To find out if you are a candidate and to register for this screening, or for more information, please call  Little Company of Mary Hospital’s Health Education Center at 708.423.5774. No doctor’s order is required.
