Lung Cancer Screening

Because early detection is so important, UT Southwestern offers a low-dose CT lung cancer screening to look for early signs of changes that can be detected and treated in people who are at the highest risk for developing lung cancer. Learn more about our CT screening for lung cancer, and find out whether you might be a good candidate for screening.
