Radiologists at Jefferson are experienced in performing chest fluoroscopy procedures to provide diagnostic information about how your lungs are functioning, and to detect abnormalities such as cancer.

In the case of suspected lung cancer, our specialists in the Thoracic Oncology Program will use this procedure coupled with renowned expertise to determine the nature and extent of detected cancer, in order to develop a personalized treatment plan.
