Animation - Screening for Lung Cancer

This animation provides an overview of screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography (called low-dose CT or LDCT). Screening is used to detect lung cancer early when it is most treatable. Watch to learn about the importance of lung cancer screening, who qualifies, and how low-dose CT works. Lung cancer screening is only available for people at high risk who meet certain screening eligibility criteria. Researchers have studied the safety of low-dose CT for more than 20 years. The results show that screening as recommended (for those eligible to be screened) is a low-risk and safe way to prevent many deaths from lung cancer.
