Lung cancer screening

Allegheny Valley was the first hospital in the Allegheny Health Network system to offer low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening for lung cancer. People who have a history of smoking or other risk factors for lung cancer can get a yearly low-dose CT screening to check for any signs of disease.

This easy, painless test helps us detect lung cancer at its earliest stage when the chances for successful treatment are highest.
