Lung Cancer Screening & Detection

Lung Cancer Screening

Houston Methodist offers lung cancer screening for early diagnosis so high-risk patients can get the treatments they need as quickly as possible. For patients who qualify for screening, we can help with determining insurance coverage or payment options, and scheduling an appointment at a Houston Methodist screening location. 


Getting a lung cancer screening is important, now more than ever. That's why we are taking every necessary precaution to see patients safely.

Lung Cancer Screening


Our lung cancer screening services include:


  • Annual low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scans
  • Health care consultations
  • Program to help smokers quit the habit
  • Referrals to Houston Methodist specialists

Lung screening LDCT scan results range from showing no disease to being suspicious for cancer. However, most suspicious nodules turn out not to be cancer.


A positive screening LDCT may require further testing to determine whether the suspicious finding is a cancer, which often is confirmed by a biopsy. 


The American College of Radiology awards special recognition to facilities for quality standards and performance through the Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center™ program. Houston Methodist lung cancer screening locations in Baytown, Texas Medical Center, and West Houston hold this designation.
