Lung Cancer Screening at Eisenhower

A National Leader in Lung Cancer Screening

Experience matters. Lung cancer screening is more than just a CT.

Since 2003, Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center has participated in the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP), a worldwide research study evaluating the effectiveness of lung cancer screening with low-dose CT scans in current and former smokers. In addition, the Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center is part of a related study for people who have never smoked but have been exposed to secondhand smoke at work or in the home.

Eisenhower’s radiologists have read thousands of lung scans as part of our decade-long participation in I-ELCAP. "Plus, we have a team in place that also includes pulmonologists, medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, interventional pulmonologists, interventional radiologists and pathologists. We really are a center of excellence in terms of doing lung cancer screening," states Davood Vafai, MD, Board Certified Oncologist.

"The decision to begin screening should be the result of a thorough discussion of the possible benefits, limitations, and known and uncertain harms." (Humphrey et al., 2013, Annals of Internal Medicine, Online)
