Early detection may be your best chance for surviving lung cancer.
As reported in the landmark US National Lung Cancer Screening Trial (NLST) published in the New England Journal of Medicine in July 2011, early detection enabled by low-dose CT scans resulted in a 20% reduction in lung cancer mortality.3
Annual low-dose CT scanning (LDCT) is now an approved method of lung cancer screening in the US with associated reimbursement. BUT only if you meet the strict criteria published by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines4, derived from the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST): age 55-80, current or ex smoker (cessation within 15 years) and 30 pack year smoking history.
As a simple blood test, EarlyCDT-Lung can be used when a patient is at increased risk of lung cancer but does not meet the criteria for annual CT screening, or for those patients who are unwilling or unable to commit to annual CT scanning.
