EarlyCDT Lung

For the early detection of lung cancer

EarlyCDT Lung

80% of lung cancer cases are diagnosed in the latest stages of the disease.

EarlyCDT Lung is a simple blood test to identify people with a heightened risk of lung cancer for triage into CT scanning.

A finger prick or blood draw can be collected in the community, GP or hospital setting.

EarlyCDT Lung can detect lung cancer on average four years before standard of care [1] and has shown in a large NHS trial that it can reduce late stage lung cancer presentation by 36% [2].
