General Information

The earlier you catch signs of lung cancer, the better options you may have for treatment. That’s why Goshen Health offers a simple, low-dose CT scan that can detect cancer in its earliest stages and get you the therapy you need.

Find out if you’re eligible

Here’s a simple way to know if you qualify for a low-dose CT scan at Goshen Health.


Note: If you have had a chest CT scan within the last year, you should allow 12 months between your chest CT and a low-dose lung CT screening.

*Pack years is the number of cigarette packs smoked every day multiplied by the number of years of smoking. 

You must have a doctor’s referral to make an appointment for a lung screening.

Diagnosis and treatment for lung disorders and diseases

If your test results show an abnormality, your doctor may refer you to an interventional pulmonologist to talk about next steps. These highly trained experts offer specialized services to diagnose and treat patients with diseases of the lungs, airways and chest.
 
Interventional Pulmonologist Dr. Muhammad Bostaji uses minimally invasive procedures to biopsy and stage cancer in one procedure, instead of multiple invasive surgeries. That means earlier diagnosis and less time between an abnormal lung screening and the start of treatment.
