Lung Cancer Screening Program

The Lung Cancer Screening Program is a collaborative effort by Princeton Radiology and University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP). The program is open to current and former smokers, age 55 to 74, with a smoking history of at least 30 pack years—that is, one pack per day for 30 years, two packs per day for 15 years, and so on.

The screening program uses computed tomography (CT) scans in an attempt to detect lung cancer at an early stage, when treatment can be more effective.

A physician's order is required for the scan, ensuring that the results and any necessary follow-up care are discussed with the patient's physician and, if appropriate, a specialist who treats pulmonary nodules. 

To help make lung cancer screenings more affordable and accessible, PHCS makes these screenings available at no cost to patients who meet the eligibility criteria to have lung cancer screening. 

The scans are available at UMCP and Princeton Radiology locations in Princeton, Monroe, and Mercerville.
