At LCI, we believe mobile lung units are a model for the future of patient care. Mobile lung units have the potential to save the lives of not only underserved populations, but also the lives of patients with insurance who may not otherwise seek out lung cancer screenings. Convenient, safe, simple, quick, and most importantly, lifesaving, mobile lung units have the potential to change the way caregivers and patients experience lung screenings for years to come.
