Welcome to the

Lung Cancer Screening Program

We offer screening for those at risk for lung cancer at several convenient locations.

NYU Langone’s Lung Cancer Screening Program, part of the Perlmutter Cancer Center, offers lung cancer screening for individuals at risk for developing lung cancer. The program is a collaboration of our pulmonary medicine, thoracic oncology, thoracic radiology, and thoracic surgery experts.

Our skilled and compassionate specialists guide patients through every aspect of lung cancer screening including, if necessary, diagnosis and treatment.

Pioneers in Lung Cancer Screening

NYU Langone experts have been innovators in lung cancer screening. NYU Langone thoracic radiologists are national leaders in their field and pioneered the use of CT scans for lung cancer screening in the 1990s. Our state-of-the-art CT equipment and medical experts ensure that screening is performed appropriately, safely, and with proper follow up and oversight.

Since 2000, our Lung Cancer Screening Program has been a part of the Early Detection Research Network of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Currently, more than 1,700 individuals have participated in our lung cancer biomarker screening study. Qualified patients may have the opportunity to participate in this NCI-funded lung cancer early detection study.

Schedule a Screening

To schedule a lung cancer screening, or for more information, please call 855-NYU-LUNG (855-698-5864). CT examinations are performed at one of NYU Langone’s imaging locations.

You will need a prescription from a physician or qualified non-physician practitioner in order to get screened. If you do not have either a prescription or a physician or non-physician practitioner, you can call us to discuss your risk for lung cancer. If you are eligible for screening, we can provide you with a referral to an NYU Langone doctor experienced in lung cancer screening.
