Radiologist Factors Influence Mammography Recall Rates, Study Indicates.

Aunt Minnie (7/24, Yee) reports that according to a study published online July 20 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, “factors associated with radiologists – such as their annual reading volume and experience – can affect breast cancer screening recall rates just as much as patient characteristics such as age or breast tissue density.” The findings “suggest that particular interventions that target radiologists – such as boosting annual reading volume requirements or performing second reviews of potential recalls – could help reduce unwanted variation in recall rates.”
