Those between 50 and 80 years of age.


Those who currently smoke or have quit in the last 15 years.


Those who smoked for 20 "pack years."

Multiply the number of packs per day by the number of years smoked to determine the “pack year.” For example, 2 packs a day x 10 years = 20 pack years and high risk. 1 pack a day for 20 years = 20 pack years and high risk.
