If you and your doctor decide you’re a good candidate for CT lung cancer screening and meet the current lung cancer screening guidelines, you’ll be scheduled for an appointment to have a low-dose Computed Tomography (CT) scan of the chest at the Emory imaging center nearest you.
Please call 404-686-5864 (LUNG) and a scheduling representative will assist you. A doctor's order is required to schedule. Orders may be faxed to 404-778-6657.
During the scheduling process you will be asked about your smoking history:
- How many years you have smoked in total.
- The average amount of cigarettes you have smoked daily.
- If you are a former smoker; what year you quit.
The day of your low dose CT lung cancer screening, it’s best to wear a comfortable shirt without any metal on it. You’ll be asked to change into a gown if your shirt has metal buttons, metal designs or a zipper. You may also be asked to remove jewelry since they will show up on your images.
