Women May Find Dense Breast Notifications Difficult To Understand, Survey Suggests.

Deseret (UT) News (2/28, Bankhead) reports that a survey found that “women often found radiology dense breast notifications (DBNs) difficult to understand and interpreted the notice incorrectly.” Researchers found that “overall, 49 of 58 women who received DBNs remembered the notifications, and all 30 women who completed a follow-up telephone survey remembered that the notice stated they had dense breasts.” But, “none of the survey participants mentioned details about the degree of breast density or how to obtain additional information.” The findings were published online in Patient Education & Counseling.
