Pulmonary

Our specialized pulmonary services address disorders of the lungs, airway and breathing functions of the body. From diagnosis to treatment to recovery, our pulmonary specialists employ today’s most trusted diagnostic techniques to determine the most effective mode of treatment.

Depending upon the diagnosis, IRMC has the staff and technology to help correct pulmonary diseases, from common respiratory disorders to advanced lung cancer.

Because Indian River County has a high incidence of Lung Cancer cases, IRMC is committed to providing a full array of treatment options.

Lung Cancer Detection

A lung cancer screening using a Low-Dose CT scan is the first step in knowing your risk of developing lung cancer. With this screening, other non-cancerous nodes can also be found.

Take our online assessment to find out if you’re at risk.
