Welcome to the

Lung Cancer Screening Program

We offer lung cancer screening for individuals at risk for developing lung cancer.

Our program, part of Perlmutter Cancer Center, offers lung cancer screening for individuals at risk for developing lung cancer. NYU Langone’s Lung Cancer Screening 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 are innovators in lung cancer screening. Our 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 expertise ensure that screening is performed appropriately, safely, and with proper follow up and oversight.

Since 2000, our Lung Cancer Screening Program has been 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 scans take place at one of NYU Langone’s imaging locations.

You will need a doctor’s prescription to get screened. If you do not have either a prescription or a doctor, you can call us to discuss your risk for lung cancer.
