Lung Screening Program
Bethesda Hospital is offering low-dose CT lung screening to patients at high risk for developing lung cancer – the leading cause of cancer death in men and women in the U.S. The screening is a safe, quick and highly effective way to detect lung cancer in its early stages, when it’s most treatable.
