What You Need to Know to Incorporate DBT Into Your Mammography Service
Jerry Thomas MS, FAAPM, DABR, CHP, DABSNM
The Radiologist’s responsibilities and image quality.

 
The 30-year Effort to Deny Women Access to Mammography Screening
Daniel B. Kopans MD
Without screening, there is little reason to image the breast. Tomosynthesis and other improvements depend on appropriate screening. Dr. Kopans presents the evidence you need to know for the American Cancer Society and ACR screening mammography recommendations, compared with controversial new guidelines that may restrict mammography, the only test for breast cancer that is proven to save lives in randomized controlled trials.

Overdiagnosis- a manufactured issue
