The newly developed, low-dose CT scan is a very effective way of detecting lung cancer early in high-risk patients. However, the scan may produce other results, or it could find other, non-cancerous conditions that would require further evaluation.

“To provide the proper counseling to our patients, we have just hired a dedicated lung cancer nurse navigator, Pamela Lynn, R.N., to provide nursing and navigational help,” said Mary Graham, M.D., Medical Director of Radiation Oncology and Chairman of the Cancer Committee at St. Anthony’s.

A nurse practitioner who holds a master’s degree in nursing, Pam Lynn began working at St. Anthony’s in 1981. From 2000 to 2015 she served as a nurse practitioner in the pulmonary practice of Robert V. Griesbaum, M.D.

“My main goal is to provide a program to detect lung cancer early and to improve outcomes, by following patients through the course of their treatment and getting them to the proper screenings and care,” she said.
