If you and your doctor determine that you should be screened, look for an imaging facility whose staff follows American College of Radiology requirements when performing low-dose CT scans.

This can help to ensure an accurate read of your scans by a highly-trained, board-certified or board-eligible radiologist.

Accredited facilities can be found at acraccreditation.org. Your may need a referral from your primary care provider. Most insurance companies, and Medicare, require this before they’ll cover the cost of screening.
