Study Suggests Pain From Mammograms Could Be Reduced

The Wall Street Journal (5/5, Lukits, Subscription Publication) reports in its “Research Report” that a study published in BMC Women’s Health found that women with smaller breasts suffered greater pain from mammogram screening, and suggested that if the force applied to breasts in screening could be made proportional to size, it would reduce the pain of screening. The study also suggested that breast compression could be shortened from an average of 12.8 seconds to 4.3 seconds, thus reducing the pain without any reduction in effectiveness.
