Lung Cancer Screening Could Save Lives

A Q & A with Sidhu Gangadharan, MD


Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women in the United States. A recent study shows that screening for lung cancer in high risk patients (namely, those who have smoked heavily for a long time) with low-dose CT scan can help catch the cancer earlier and reduce the number of patient deaths.

Dr. Sidhu Gangadharan, Chief of Thoracic Surgery in the Chest Disease Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, discusses this screening tool and how it could help save lives.
