KentuckyOne Health Imaging Earns ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center Designation

01/18/17 News Article

KentuckyOne Health Imaging in Richmond, KY, has been designated a Lung Cancer Screening Center by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Lung cancer is the nation’s leading cancer killer – taking the lives of more people each year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined.

The ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center designation is a voluntary program that recognizes facilities that are committed to safe, effective diagnostic care for individuals at the highest risk for lung cancer.

To receive this distinction, a facility must be accredited by the ACR in computed tomography in the chest module and undergo a rigorous assessment of its lung cancer screening protocol and infrastructure. The facility must also have procedures in place for follow-up patient care, such as counseling and smoking cessation programs.
