Women Prefer To Receive Mammogram Screenings Annually Rather Than Biennially, Research Suggests.

The Radiology Business Journal (12/20, Thakar) reports that research suggests “women prefer to receive their mammogram screenings annually rather than biennially because they believe it causes less anxiety.” The research was presented at RSNA 2017.
