Using DBT in Combination with FFDM Among Medicaid Enrollees Could Save State Programs More Than $200,000 Per Year, Study Suggests

Aunt Minnie (2/6, Yee) reports that research suggests “using digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in combination with full-field digital mammography (FFDM) among Medicaid enrollees could save state programs more than $200,000 per year – and individual plans more than $12,000 annually.” The “cost savings would come from fewer recalls and earlier cancer detection, which benefit the women themselves, the authors wrote.” The findings were published online in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
