Ball Memorial Lung Cancer Screenings

Are you at risk for lung cancer?

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. as well as in Indiana. That is why Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital is offering a screening program for patients who are at high risk of developing lung cancer. Screenings help detect lung cancer in its early stages to increase the chance for recovery. Take the first steps in finding out your risk of lung cancer and learning what you can do next.

If you are eligible, a screening involves a CT scan of your lungs and speaking with a healthcare professional about your lung cancer risk. The out of pocket expense for this screening is $49. To schedule or for more information, please call 765.751.2727 or go to our website at

If you have questions about the screening, please speak with your doctor about the risk factors of lung cancer and the benefits of this screening.

Please answer the following questions.
