Lung Cancer Screening Program

Frisbie Memorial Hospital’s Lung Cancer Screening Program aims to detect early stage lung cancer in high risk patients. When detected early, patients have more treatment options and a far greater chance of survival. The Lung Cancer Screening Program streamlines the process of diagnosing, using low-dose CT (LDCT) technology, and treating cancer through a multidisciplinary approach, which includes a team of medical specialists specializing in the areas of thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pulmonology, pathology, and radiology.

Frisbie’s Lung Cancer Screening Program was recently named a Screening Center of Excellence by the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer for its ongoing commitment to responsible lung cancer screening. Low dose CT screening for lung cancer carried out safely, efficiently and equitably can save tens of thousands of lives a year by finding lung cancer early when it is most treatable and even curable.

As a Screening Center of Excellence, Frisbie’s Lung Cancer Screening Program has in place the following elements:

  • Provides clear information on the risks and benefits of CT screening
  • Complies with standards based on the most up to date best published practices for managing screening quality, radiation dose and diagnostic procedures
  • Works collectively as a multidisciplinary team to carry out the process of screening, diagnosis and the continuum of care
  • Provides comprehensive smoking cessation resources for patients who use tobacco products
  • Provides results of the screening scans to the patient or referring physician as appropriate in a timely manner
