Falmouth, Maine. Maine Cancer Foundation has announced $325,229 in awards to ten Maine organizations, including an effort to bring a revolutionary lung cancer screening technology to four Maine hospitals.

Known as “low-dose CT scans” (LDCT), the new technique allows doctors to detect lung tumors at stage one and stage two, a time when treatments are more effective. Historically, most lung cancers are detected at stage three or four when obvious symptoms appear and the odds successful treatment are slim.
