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.

Navigational bronchoscopy

A navigational bronchoscopy uses a special bronchoscope to examine and treat lesions in areas of the lungs that are inaccessible using a regular bronchoscope. Navigational bronchoscopy combines electromagnetic navigation with real-time computed tomography (CT) images to create a three-dimensional map of the lungs. Our physicians are then able to use this map to guide the navigational bronchoscope, which includes an extended working channel and guidewire, to difficult-to-access areas of the lungs to take a biopsy or help guide radiation therapy directly to a hard-to-reach lesion.

 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.
