Healthy Lung Screen

November is lung cancer awareness month.  Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. And as you might guess, 80% to 90% of all lung cancers are linked to cigarette smoking.

In order to improve this life-threatening trend, the United States Preventative Task Force, an independent group of national health experts, has approved lung cancer screening protocols for healthy patients.

We spoke with the board certified specialists at the Center for Medical Imaging about lung cancer and the steps that can be taken to detect it early.

Diagnostic Imaging

If you’ve ever broken a bone, chances are you had an x-ray done to accurately diagnose the extent of that fracture. A radiologist, would then review and interpret the image and give his report to your doctor.

Dr. Marc Siegel, a diagnostic radiologist at The Center for Medical Imaging explains the roles radiologists play in our medical care.
