The AMITA Health Cancer Institute offers one of the most comprehensive lung cancer programs in the region — from lung cancer screening and smoking cessation programs to minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedures to compassionate palliative care. In the last 10 years, we have cared for nearly 5,000 patients with lung cancer at two destination centers. Any patient with a suspicious abnormality on a CT scan or chest x-ray can be referred to the program and have immediate access to our expert team for further evaluation. Once referred, every case is discussed in our multidisciplinary cancer conference, where interventional pulmonologists and radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists, and radiologists come together to find the best course of care for each patient, including potential eligibility for one of our many clinical trials.
