CT lung screening

Maury Regional Health offers CT lung screenings at several locations. Unfortunately, mortality rates due to lung cancer are high in our region and the main cause is smoking. CT lung screenings are the best way to detect abnormalities in the lungs before any signs or symptoms may appear. If you are a current or former smoker, the following information will determine if you are a candidate for a screening. In order to qualify for a CT lung screening, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Be 55-77 years of age
  • Be asymptomatic (no signs or symptoms of lung cancer)
  • Have a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack-years (one pack-year = smoking one pack per day for one year; 1 pack = 20 cigarettes)
  • Be a current smoker or one who has quit smoking within the last 15 years
  • Receive a written order for lung cancer screening with Low-Dose CT that meets the requirements described in the National Coverage Determination (CMS)

A physician's order is required. Talk to your physician or call 931.380.4044 for more information.
