Aunt Minnie (3/30, Yee) reports, “More than 80% of screening breast MRI exams are performed on women for whom the test is not necessarily recommended – that is, women with a lifetime risk for the disease of less than 20%,” according to a study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. “Breast MRI use that is not concordant with guidelines...poses distinct challenges to effective resource allocation in breast cancer screening,” the researchers wrote. The piece notes, “Screening breast MRI is currently recommended for women with 20% or greater lifetime breast cancer risk by the American Cancer Society (ACS), the American College of Radiology (ACR), and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI).”
