Lung Scans

Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world and the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Norman Regional offers a low-dose computed tomography (CT) scan which screens for lung cancer.

This non-invasive and painless test involves a CT scan of the chest area. This screening is recommended for people who:

  • Are between the ages 55 to 74
  • Have smoked more than a pack a day for 30 years
  • Currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years
  • Have been exposed to second-hand smoke for an extended period of time
  • Had or have a job with exposure to radon, asbestos or diesel exhaust

One of our highly-trained radiologists will review the images produced by the scan. You will be notified of any abnormal findings by our specialized nurse navigator who will help guide you through the follow-up process. Norman Regional's comprehensive lung services also include board-certified pulmonologists and interventional pulmonologists. Our team of experts is available to provide follow-up care and treatment including biopsies. If the findings are normal, you will receive a letter with this result. This screening provides a baseline or point of reference for additional tests you may need throughout your life. We recommend that patients share all results and findings with their primary care physician.

You don't need a physician referral. The test takes fewer than 10 minutes and only costs $79.00.

The lung screening is performed, by appointment only, at Norman Regional Hospital, Norman Regional HealthPlex and Norman Regional Moore, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information or to make an appointment call 405-307-2290.
