It can be challenging to find a brief, current review on cutting edge topics. Here we provide "white papers," which are brief overviews on current topics written by Society members who are experts in these areas. The topics of the white papers will vary over time depending upon what is new, evolving, or of current interest. All papers have undergone review by the SBI Scientific Advisory Committee and approved by the SBI Board of Directors. We hope that you will find these helpful.
Unless otherwise stated, the content of the white papers reflects the perspective of the authors and not necessarily the position of the Society of Breast Imaging.
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. In a video interview, lead author Ghizlane Bouzghar, MD, said that the US Preventive Services Task Force, “as well as the American Cancer Society and the [American College of Radiology] still acknowledge the benefits of annual screening mammography in saving women’s lives.”
