Early detection can save your life, and that’s why Piedmont Medical Center we believe screenings are so important.
Lung Cancer CT Screenings
Lung cancer is often discovered in its late stages, after symptoms develop, making it one of the deadliest cancers. Early detection and treatment can make all the difference.
At Piedmont, we offer lung cancer CT screenings to those considered high risk for developing the disease. Risk factors for people over the age of 50 include:
- Current or former heavy tobacco user
- Second-hand smoke exposure
- Contact with asbestos, radon or other cancer-causing agents
- Family history of lung cancer, lung diseases or other cancers

Piedmont Medical Center was the first hospital in the region offer 3D mammography. Digital 3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, provides physicians with a clearer image of deep breast tissue and decreases the need for further examinations. This advanced technology can help distinguish superimposed tissue from real abnormalities, leading to fewer callbacks and less anxiety for women. Tomosynthesis may also find abnormalities at earlier stages, when breast cancer is most treatable. Physician order is required for 3D mammography.
