Watson Clinic’s Radiology department has been designated a Lung Cancer Screening center by the American College of Radiology. This distinction reflects the department’s commitment to providing low dose screening and diagnostic care for those considered at high risk for lung cancer.
Low dose computed tomography (CT) screening is the most effective means available for detecting the presence of lung cancer and formulating a potentially life-saving course of treatment. This designation by the American College of Radiology signifies that Watson Clinic offers the cutting-edge imaging equipment, highly experienced physicians and radiologic technologists, and the strict quality standards necessary to perform these services in the safest and most effective manner.
Medicare guidelines currently recommend annual low dose CT screening for lung cancer for adults ages 55 to 77 years of age who have a 30 pack-year history, and who currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years.
Watson Clinic’s Radiology department offers a large digital inventory of imaging systems, a team of expert physicians with specialized training and experience, and the convenience of multiple locations. For more information, call 863-680-7755 or visit WatsonClinic.com/Radiology.
