Lung Cancer Alliance Congratulates 75 Medical Centers For Screening Program
Today, Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) applauded over 75 medical centers nationwide that have announced they will begin lung screening for those at risk as part of their continuum of multi-disciplinary care for lung cancer. These sites have committed to provide clear information based on current evidence on who is a candidate for lung cancer screening, and to comply with comprehensive standards based on best practices developed by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP) for controlling screening quality, radiation dose and diagnostic procedures within an experienced, multi-disciplinary clinical setting. Atlantic Medical Imaging is among the 75 sites. Click here to read the full article.
