Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Services

Lung Abstract Image

Drexel Medicine takes a multidisciplinary approach to lung cancer, leveraging specialists in pulmonology, hematology/oncology, radiology, and surgery to diagnose and treat the disease.

Diagnosis

To screen for lung cancer, we use low-dose computed tomography (low-dose CT scan). In this test, an X-ray machine scans the body and uses low doses of radiation to make detailed images of the lungs. The low-dose CT scan is particularly good at picking up small nodules. The images are evaluated by our team of pulmonologists for precise diagnosis and staging.

Lung cancer screening is recommended for people who:

  • Have smoked for 30 years, and
  • Smoked within the past 15 years and
  • Are between 55 and 79 years old

Lung Cancer Treatment

After a lung cancer diagnosis, our team will tailor a treatment that's right for you. Our specialists incorporate surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and immunotherapy to deliver integrated medicine that aligns with your personalized treatment plan.
