Manatee Memorial Hospital (MMH) and Manatee Diagnostic Center (MDC) lung programs have been named Screening Centers of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) for their ongoing commitment to responsible lung cancer screenings. Low dose CT screening for lung cancer carried out safely, efficiently and equitably saves tens of thousands of lives a year. Designated Screening Centers of Excellence are committed to providing clear and current, evidence-based information on candidates who meet criteria for lung cancer screening. They also comply with comprehensive best-practice standards for controlling screening quality, radiation dosage and diagnostic procedures within an experienced, multi-disciplinary setting. The best practices followed are developed by professional bodies, such as the American College of Radiology (ACR), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP).
