Lung Cancer Incidence and Detection

Lung cancer detected in the early stages is 10x more curable than late stage lung cancer. Unfortunately, almost half of lung cancer is detected in the later stages. During CT studies ordered for other reasons, incidental nodules can provide a valuable early detection tool. Use these valuable resources to learn more about the many benefits of lung cancer screening.

Getting a Lung Cancer Screening Program Started

Lung cancer screening guidelines have changed over the last 10 years. In May 2021, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) published new guidelines based on clinical findings that demonstrated the clear value of screening in saving lives. Annual screening is recommended for people aged 50-80 with a 20 pack-year smoking habit who have quit within the last 15 years.

In November 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommended an increase in reimbursement for low-dose CT exams specifically for lung cancer screening. This 37% increase is driven by reclassification of CPT code 71271 into APC 5522.
