The Lung Nodule Clinic is a collaboration between Allina Health United Lung & Sleep Clinic, Minnesota Oncology and the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute. It is staffed by pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons and medical oncologists.
Doctors evaluate, diagnose and care for small nodules found in lung CT scans or chest X-rays. A cancer care coordinator guides patient care from the first appointment through ongoing monitoring and treatment.
Lung patients should download the medical history form to complete and bring with you to your appointment.
