Bill Requiring Warning Of Mammograms’ Limitations Passes Utah Senate.

The Deseret (UT) News (3/1) reports that the Utah Senate unanimously passed a bill that requires a warning from healthcare providers to women with dense breast tissue that mammograms may not detect their cancer. The bill requires that a statement be included with a woman’s mammogram results to inform her that dense breast tissue “can make it more difficult to fully and accurately evaluate your mammogram and detect early signs of cancer in the breast.”
