Lung Cancer

At ProRad, we are very familiar with Lung Cancer and it's adverse effects. A much-loved Uncle of our founder, Otunba Yomi Onabolu - veteran broadcaster and GM of OGTV back in the day, passed away from this dreaded disease about a couple of decades ago, robbing his family of his love and especially, more time with him.

Screening to detect the disease much earlier would have really helped. By the time he was diagnosed, it was rather late, and he passed on only a few months later. It did not have to be that way if CT screening was available. At that time, it was possible to screen by Chest X-ray, which he had done but was misdiagnosed.

CT screening for lung cancer is much more accurate due to the marked increase in detail. It can detect much smaller cancers than with chest x-ray. It is fast, and with the advanced CT machine we have at ProRad, the dose for the CT chest is about the same as for a chest x-ray.

In Japan, CT screening for lung cancer has cut the death rate by 51%! That is HUGE!!!

If you smoke or have smoked in the past, you may be at risk for developing lung cancer.
Don't leave it too late - get a CT scan of your lungs soonest.
