LUNG CANCER SCREENING
Although many helpful questionnaires and other tests are available, the only recommended screening test for lung cancer is the low-dose Computed Tomography (CT), in which the lungs are scanned for cancer-related changes.

Pulmonary Function Testing involves assessing the volume, capacity, flow rate and gas exchange of the lungs. They provide a portrait of lung function and can help diagnose some lung disorders.
