Mount Sinai Queens offers low-dose CT (LDCT) screening to identify lung abnormalities in patients at high risk for developing lung cancer. This relatively new test has been very successful in detecting cancerous nodules in their earliest stages, even before symptoms appear, when the disease is easier to treat. Research has shown that low-dose CT screening saves lives.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women and is, by far, the leading cause of cancer death, more than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. Typically, symptoms of lung cancer don’t appear until the disease has progressed and is not curable. Studies show that by catching nodules early in higher risk people, annual LDCT scans can reduce the risk of dying from lung cancer.
Primary care physicians may recommend LDCT screenings for heavy smokers or former smokers between the ages of 55 and 80. Patients with a referral may call 1-844-MSCT-4ME (1-844-672-8463) to make an appointment. Medicare, Medicaid, and other insurance plans often cover lung screenings for eligible patients. The scan is quick and painless and will be read by a skilled board certified radiologist at Mount Sinai Queens.

This advanced equipment enables our highly trained technologists to perform many new, highly sophisticated studies, including MR and CT Angiography; CT screen for lung cancer, colon cancer, and cardiovascular disease; oncologic and cardiac PET/CT; and digital, sonographic, and biopsy studies of the breast. Our top-of-the-line picture archiving and communications system provides referring physicians with remote web access to CT, MRI, ultrasound, and diagnostic x-ray studies. Our Department of Radiology operates on a digital basis with immediate availability of all imaging studies.
Scanning is done by highly trained technologists and interpreted by experienced, board certified, fellowship-trained radiologists, who are members of the faculty at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. We offer the following digital technology:
- Bone density scan
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Image-guided procedures, including biopsies, injections, and myelography
- Mammography and breast tomosynthesis
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- PET/CT scan
We specialize in the following imaging.
- Breast ultrasound
- Head and neck imaging
- Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)
- MR arthrography
- Musculoskeletal ultrasound
Our board certified radiologists use the latest screening tools and diagnostic testing to detect cancer. These include CT scans, PET scans, and MRIs to evaluate possible cancerous tumors in the lung, liver, head, and neck. If cancer is found, our radiologists work collaboratively with oncologists and surgeons at the Mount Sinai Queens Infusion Center to provide image-guided procedures for diagnosis and treatment.
