Study Finds Verbal Followup Is Best For Breast Imaging Patients With Mammograms That Are Inconclusive.

The Radiology Business Journal (8/20, Slachta) reports on a study published in Academic Radiology finding that verbal communication “is the best way to achieve timely follow-up with breast imaging patients whose mammograms are inconclusive.” Verbal follow-up was found “superior to email, snail mail and EMR-generated reminders in reaching out to patients whose mammograms were assigned a BI-RADS score of 0.” The study “included 34,680 mammography examinations across 28 facilities.”
