Windsong Radiology to Hold 2nd Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer Event
(Williamsville, October 15, 2018) — Windsong Radiology has been named a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance since 2015 for its ongoing commitment to responsible lung cancer screening. Windsong will host the Shine a Light on Lung Cancer event on Wednesday, November 14th from 6-7 PM in the Windsong community room at 55 Spindrift Drive in Williamsville. Windsong invites lung cancer survivors, and their caregivers to come together to bring hope, inspiration and support to all individuals impacted by the disease. The event will feature a personal story from a patient, a survivor and caregiver, with dedicated time to honor those that have fought or who continue to fight the disease.
”Nearly 94 million current or former smokers remain at elevated risk for lung cancer which is the leading cause of death from cancer in this country, and unfortunately only 2 percent have taken advantage of the low dose lung cancer screening program.” says Dr. Raja Cheruvu, who directs the low dose lung cancer screening program at Windsong.
Windsong is recognized by both the American College of Radiology and the Lung Cancer Alliance as a nationally recognized lung cancer screening center of excellence. Designated Screening Centers of Excellence are committed to providing lung cancer screening that complies with comprehensive standards based on best practices 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). Screening quality, radiation dose and diagnostic procedures with strict guidelines are delivered within an experienced, multi-disciplinary clinical setting at Windsong.
