Dense Breast Notification Laws Associated With Increase In Follow-Up Ultrasound.

HealthImaging (7/30, O'Connor) reports on a study published in Medical Care finding that “dense breast notification policies were associated with an increase in follow-up ultrasound.” The study included “13,481,554 mammogram screening procedures taken from the MarketScan Research database performed between 2007 and 2014.” All the women included “were privately insured and lived in a state that enacted notification legislation during the study period.” The researchers found “a 1.02 percent jump in breast ultrasound imaging 30 days after mammography screening” after legislation was enacted.
