Early CT-CDT Lung Screening

Lung cancer is the top 3 most common cancer in Singapore, and the number #1 cause of cancer death.

At ICTS, we have put together a health screening plan to screen for early lung cancer that may be too small to be picked up by X-rays. An early diagnosis means there’s a chance of as high as 80% of cure for lung cancer.

About ICTS

We offer a full range of thoracic services, which includes surgery for the lungs, oesophagus, and chest wall.

At International Centre for Thoracic Surgery (ICTS), we believe in the marriage of technology and medicine to help improve lives. Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeon to perform procedures with more precision and control compared to conventional techniques. Robotic surgery is performed through tiny incisions, this means a quicker recovery for patients with shorter hospital stays, minimal scarring and reduced risk of infection.

Dr Aneez Ahmed is the first in the ASEAN cohort to get a Level III Certificate in Robotic Thoracic Surgery. He is also one of the only two accredited surgeons in Singapore trained to perform Robotic Thoracic Surgery, and the only proctor for Thoracic Surgeons in ASEAN.
