Expert Video - What is lung cancer preventative screening?
Dr. Abbie Begnaud, an expert pulmonologist at the University of Minnesota, provides an overview of lung cancer preventative screening. She explains that lung cancer screening with a low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan, looks for small "spots" on the lungs when a person has no symptoms. Dr. Begnaud further discusses that screening can help diagnose lung cancer early which can lead to a much better health outcome.
