Breathe Easier!

Lung Screening

Roper St. Francis Healthcare’s affordable new lung cancer screenings will help save lives.

It’s early November and the pink ribbons so prevalent throughout October are still hanging around. But here’s a chilling fact: breast cancer is NOT the number one cancer killer for women. Lung cancer is.

In fact, lung cancer is the top cancer killer for American women AND men, largely because it’s a silent cancer—rarely exhibiting symptoms until it’s well advanced and more deadly. Just as the disease often lurks under the radar in the body, lung cancer is a “silent” cancer in the public realm too, with no big PR campaign behind it. Low awareness and high mortality is not a good combo.

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is working to change this. During Lung Cancer Awareness month (November!) we are doing more than spreading the word about lung cancer, we are working to make it less deadly by promoting early detection through preventative lung CT screenings. And here’s the real exciting news: now these screenings are only $99!

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is pleased to offer Low Dose CT Lung Screening studies at a newly reduced charge of $99 at all CT scan locations. To be eligible for this procedure, patients must meet three criteria:

There are also several exclusion criteria to be aware of:

Talk to your doctor if you meet the above criteria. A simple screening may save your life!
