BROOKLYN, NY – Prominis Medical and The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) announced today a joint collaboration aimed at combating the rate of lung cancer for Brooklyn residents. Detecting lung cancer at its earliest stages, when it is most treatable, is now a reality. The new low dose CT scan screening program identifies people at risk and helps them begin treatment long before symptoms occur. The quick and innovative screening technology was recently approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and is now available for use. “The new Low-Dose CT Screening for the early detection of lung cancer is a game changer,” says Dr. Shalom Buchbinder, Chairman of Radiology at TBHC. “With this new scan we can identify and treat the first signs of cancer, allowing most patients to survive long term.”
