Firefighters. Smokers. Former smokers. Veterans. Those 55 and older. These are the Floridians who can most benefit from lung screening, but those without risk factors can also get this preventive test. The low-dose CT (LDCT) is a short, simple, non-invasive exam that can find over half of lung cancer at an early stage, compared to only about 25% without screening.



“Regular screening finds lung disease early, when it is most treatable and survivable. At FLHC, we’re driving screening innovation and uptake.”
