ACR and SBI’s Monticciolo, Monsees Discuss Breast Imaging Technologies

The NPR (10/7, Hobson) “Shots” blog reports that “mammography can prevent deaths from breast cancer, but it’s not a perfect test,” as “it misses some cancers, especially in women with dense breast tissue, and flags abnormalities for follow-up tests that turn out to be benign, among other issues.” American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Commission Chair Debra Monticciolo, MD, FACR, and breast imaging commission member Barbara Monsees, MD, FACR, discuss the pros and cons of using other breast imaging technologies to address these issues.
