Low-dose CT is a screening test for lung cancer. It is recommended that you talk with your doctor about having it if you have smoked a pack a day for 30 years, 2 packs a day for 15 years, or if you have quit smoking within the past 15 years. You also need to be age 55-80. Lung cancer screening will be covered under the Affordable Care Act for those who fit these guidelines beginning January 1, 2015.
