Lung Nodule Clinic

Lung Nodule Clinic

Care New England offers a dedicated lung nodule clinic to achieve timely evaluation of patients with lung nodules detected incidentally or through lung cancer screening CT scans. The Clinic team is led by a Board certified pulmonary and critical care medical doctor.

During the office visit a full history will be taken, a risk assessment will be performed along with a physical exam. Pulmonary Function testing, spirometry, and lab work may be ordered. As needed, referrals will be made to other specialties based upon the patient’s preferences, goals of care and the overall clinical picture.

The Lung Nodule Clinic also serves as a referral source for a shared-decision making visit prior to lung cancer screening. Our clinicians will order the initial (baseline) lung cancer screening CT scan and communicate the results to your patient. Expert follow up is provided by one of our pulmonary specialists.
