Fremont County, Wyo. (January 28, 2021) – SageWest Health Care is now offering a low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening program to help detect lung cancer in patients who meet specific criteria. 

In order to qualify for a lung screening, a patient must:
be between 55-77 years old;
have smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years;  
be a current smoker or one who has quit smoking within the past 15 years;
show no signs of lung cancer;
have a physician order the test; and
undergo an educational session with the prescribing physician.

“Each year, according to the American Cancer Society more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. Many patients with this disease don’t have any symptoms at all,” said Dr. Edwin Butler, SageWest Health Care Radiologist. “This screening has the potential to help save lives by detecting lung cancer earlier, which means patients have the opportunity to begin treatment sooner.”  

It is important to have a conversation with your doctor to determine if this test is right for you. For more information, call 335.6250 or 857.3462.
