Hilton Head Hospital Launches CT Lung Screening Program

Nov 14, 2019

Hilton Head, S.C. - November 14, 2019 - Hilton Head Regional Healthcare (HHRH) is pleased to announce the launch of its Lung Cancer Screening Program.

Smoking is a major risk factor for developing lung cancer. The Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Lung Cancer Screening Program provides a non-invasive procedure, low-dose CT (LDCT), to screen current and former smokers who are at a high risk of developing the disease.

Micah Burford is a registered nurse and the Lung Screening Nurse Navigator. She serves as a resource to patients and physicians in the coordination of care. This begins with risk identification and screening and continues with education and guidance throughout diagnosis and treatment.

“I strongly believe that at-risk people should pursue a CT Lung Screening for several reasons,” said Micah Burford, Lung Screening Nurse Navigator. “It has shown to increase the early detection of lung cancer, which can improve survival odds. If a patient puts off screening and lung cancer is not discovered until it is at a more advanced stage, they may face greater complications when it comes to treatment and recovery.”

Following evidence-based guidelines, Micah serves as a primary point of contact for patients and caregivers to ensure timely access to care, to keep communication flowing, and to answer questions about medical information.
