If you have ever been a smoker, and most certainly, if you still smoke, treat yourself to a lung scan at FRPI. Current data shows that, when caught early enough, the survival rate for lung cancer is very high. By the time anything shows up on a standard chest x-ray, it is usually too late to be cured. One deep breath with our FDA approved CT scanner could save your life!
CT screening for lung cancer in a recent study increased the long term survival to 82%. This is remarkable as the survival is usually less than 10% when diagnosed with Chest X-rays.
CT screening can find lung cancer as small as 2 mm in size. Lung cancer does not show up on chest X-ray until it is over 10 times the size as can be seen on CT. The sooner we find lung cancer the better the cure rate. Stage 1 lung cancers smaller than 15 mm in size were found to be curable over 90% of the time.
We are currently doing EBCT heart scans and Ultrasounds in the office!
However, at this time, we are unable to offer diagnostic CT scans, including virtual colonoscopies. We hope to resume these services by the end of 2022.
