Hear one patient's story:
"I had been a smoker for several years, attempting to give it up many times and finally succeeding in August 1990. In January of 2000 spiral CT was made available as a screening for lung cancer. While I was hoping that all would be okay, I was aware that the examination could prove otherwise. Dr. Boiselle, Chief of Thoracic Imaging, called me that very morning and told me that I had a suspicious 15 mm lesion in the upper right lobe. I decided I wanted this checked and removed as soon as possible and on 2/8/00 I underwent a right upper lobectomy for a bronchoalveolar carcinoma. This was a very small 6 mm cancer and I needed no further treatment.
I feel so fortunate to have been working here and to have been able to take advantage of this offer and have such a fine radiologist as Dr. Boiselle involved. Because of this diagnosis and outcome, my twin brother had a spiral CT in Toronto (which was normal) and an associate of his had one as well, which showed, like me, a small cancer which was removed - so Canada is thankful too!
