Epworth Eastern’s FREE lung cancer screening

Lung screening campaign

Could your patient be at risk of developing lung cancer?

Are any of your patients a smoker or recent former smoker? Are they aged 55 to 80? In good general health?

If you answer ‘yes’ to all three questions, your patient may be eligible to participate in an international research NHMRC funded study (APP 1099154) conducted at Epworth Eastern.

Eligible persons will be referred to the trial and will have a low-dose chest CT scan to see if it can detect early lung cancer.

Referring GPs will be provided with patient reports and scans with the opportunity to further refer their patients for specialist treatment at Epworth Eastern.

Patients can leave their name, contact number and address on voicemail when they phone 03 9895 2437.

Thank you for your interest.
