Lung Cancer

Oncology Solutions

Lung Cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths around the world, causing more deaths than prostate, breast and colon cancer combined.1 Only 18.5 percent of patients will survive five or more years after being diagnosed with lung cancer.2
Reinforcing the National Lung Cancer Screening Trail’s (NLST)3, the Nelson study provided promising new results that annual screening of high risk patients using low dose CT had a 26 percent mortality reduction in the male trial.4,5 GE Healthcare provides high quality CT scanners for the new low dose lung cancer screening option.6
