CT Scan (Initiative)

Lung cancer is now the UK's most deadly form of cancer. The main reason being because of how hard it is to detect: in 75% of cases, it has already progressed to stage III or IV.


But a recent NHS study revealed that early screening with CT scans could reduce the mortality rate by detecting 70% of cases at stage I or II, when it is still operable. We needed to raise awareness of this new news, and lobby for the introduction of a national screening programme, like with breast and prostate cancer.
