Overdiagnosis- A Manufactured Issue
Overdiagnosis- A Manufactured Issue
Technology, specificity, and the patient. Dr. Kopans presents the perspective for physicians who actually have responsibility for helping the patient.
The concept of "overdiagnosis" in a population degrades when considered from the individual patient's perspective. Your patients and referring professionals may be confused by the exaggerated attention this topic receives in the lay press and even the medical opinion literature. Dr. Kopans tells you what you need to know to care for your patients or other professionals who have questions.
