Advanced Lung Cancer Screening

Like all cancers, the key to lung cancer survival is early detection. Adventist Health Glendale is proud to be among the first hospitals in the Glendale area to introduce a new lung cancer screening program and technology designed to offer health care providers a faster pathway to lung cancer detection and treatment.

Adventist Health Glendale has long been at the forefront of offering programs and cutting-edge technology for early detection of a wide range of conditions. The adoption of DynaLync and DynaCAD Lung provides critical tools to aid with the identification, tracking, and management of relevant information to help physicians reach a quick and definitive diagnosis.

Finding Lung Cancer in its Earliest Stages

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women, resulting in more than 150,000 deaths each year in the United States; a figure that is greater than the mortality rates of breast, prostate and colon cancer combined.1 Lung cancer screening (LCS) using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) has been clinically-proven to reduce lung cancer mortality in individuals at high-risk for lung cancer.2

What is Low Dose CT Screening?

Low dose CT (LDCT) lung screening is quick and easy and results in a minimal amount of radiation exposure. AHGL is determined to raise awareness and improve access to this testing for all people at high risk. Therefore, we are currently offering LDCT lung screening to individuals who meet the established high-risk criteria.

If you think you meet the criteria, please call (818) 409-8003 to speak with our program coordinator to learn more about our lung cancer screening program and services.
