Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening

Breathe easier & get screened with our lung cancer screening program.

In partnership with our Cancer Center, our pulmonologists conduct a low-dose computed tomography, also called a low-dose CT scan. This screening is recommended only for adults who have no symptoms but are at high risk for developing lung cancer.

The scan only takes a few minutes and is not painful. You will lie on a table and an x-ray machine uses a low amount of radiation to make detailed images of your lungs.

When to get screened:

  • Age 50-80
  • Asymptomatic (no signs or symptoms of lung disease)
  • Tobacco smoking history of at least 20 pack-years
  • One pack-year=smoking one pack per day for one year (1 pack = 20 cigarettes)
  • Current smoker or one who has quit smoking within the last 15 years

Advanced Pulmonary Diagnostics:

Terrebonne General Pulmonology Care is proud to be the only clinic in the region to provide the most advanced diagnostic technology.

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a procedure that uses ultrasound technology in combination with bronchoscopy to visualize the walls of the airways and surrounding structures. EBUS allows doctors to locate hard-to-reach tumors and small cell lung cancer. EBUS can also be used to take a biopsy from tissue in the lungs or the surrounding lymph nodes in the chest.

Robotic Bronchoscopy

During robotic-assisted bronchoscopy with Ion, your physician guides an ultra-thin catheter through your airway to the area of your lung for biopsy.

The small, flexible catheter can reach all segments of the lung—even far into the outer lung.

Once the nodule for the biopsy is located, the catheter locks in place. Your physician will insert biopsy tools through the catheter to take a sample of your lung tissue.

Ask your doctor today for more information.
