Dr. Henschke introduces herself and share the best way to detect lung cancer.
My name is Claudia Henschke. I am a radiologist at Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Currently the best way to detect small, early lung cancers is by CT. Large or later stage lung cancers you can see on chest x-ray also. Other imaging tests that you can see it on is a PET scan.
