    Lung Cancer Screening

    Lung cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer in the United States, with over 160,000 fatalities in 2012 according to the National Cancer Institute. Until recently lung cancer was difficult to detect unless it had progressed to a very advanced stage. Now, the American Lung Association has accepted and identified low-dose lung CT scans that can assist in diagnosing the disease at its earliest and most treatable stage. Radiologist Dr. John Finger and thoracic surgeon Dr. John Hilu talk about the detection and treatment of lung cancer.
