Early detection saves lives. Lung disease, including lung cancer, often develops over time. As a result, many patients present without any symptoms or signs of disease. A low dose CT lung cancer screening allows for the early detection of disease which greatly increases the chances for survival.
We have responded to concerns regarding the ability to contact Imaging staff, after regular business hours. We have added a voice message to the Diagnostic Imaging phone extension.

This addition to Pavilion Diagnostic Imaging allows long length images to be taken in the outpatient setting at the Pavilion Imaging Center.
