Low-cost CT screening

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — University Healthcare Berkeley Medical Center offers longtime smokers the opportunity to undergo a lung screening that research shows can help detect cancer earlier.

Low-dose CT lung screenings for lung cancer will be offered at a discounted rate beginning in August.  The first screening clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 10, from 8 a.m. to noon in the radiology department at Berkeley Medical Center.  Another screening clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 24.

The CT lung screening is only open to patients who meet certain criteria — current or former smoker, age 55 to 74, smoking history of at last one pack a day for 30 years, and no history of lung cancer.  The screening is a decision that should be made in consultation with a physician. Patients must obtain an order for the lung screen from a primary care physician. Dr. Eric Bonnem will provide an order for patients without a primary care physician.

An appointment is required for the discounted CT lung screening. The exam is $99 and includes the CT screening with interpretation by a radiologist. The cost may be paid by cash, check or credit card. Insurance will not be billed. 

For an appointment, call 304-264-1297. 

For more information about the screening clinic, contact the radiology department at Berkeley Medical Center at 304-264-1211.
