Study Finds Patients Using Internet To Research Breast Cancer And Mammography Ask About Efficacy And Screening Guidelines.

The Radiology Business Journal (12/11, Thakar) reports on a study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology finding that patients who use the Internet to research breast cancer and mammography most frequently conduct searches for “mammographic efficacy (31 percent) and mammographic screening guidelines (20 percent).” They mostly found answers recommending screening, and urged radiologists to answer such questions online and to do so while identifying themselves as radiologists. The study included “more than 197,000 views of mammogram or mammography-related questions” with a focus on “51 questions and 172 responses by medical professionals and 121 questions and 172 responses by nonmedical users.”
