Lung Cancer Screening
Mid-Delaware Imaging is an American College of Radiology certified Lung Cancer Screening Center. By using low radiation dose CT scan technique, we image the lungs in under 10 seconds and a board-certified Radiologist reviews your scan to screen for lung cancer.

- Adults aged 50 to 80 years
- Asymptomatic (no signs or symptoms of lung cancer)
- Tobacco smoking history of at least 20 pack-years (pack-years are calculated by multiplying the number of packs smoked per day by number of years smoked)
- Current or former smokers who have quit within the last 15 years
