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 (11/8, Doss) reports that “imaging centers and public health organizations may need to devote additional resources to provide access to follow-ups after a positive mammography, according to Louise Henderson, PhD, assistant professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Department of Radiology.” According to the Journal, “Henderson was the senior author on a study published in Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention that found uninsured women younger than 65 years old had delayed follow-up appointments after a positive mammogram.” First author Danielle Durham, PhD, Cancer Prevention Fellow at the National Cancer Institute, said, “It’s important to remember that this is a particular population of people who have sought care.” Dr. Durham added, “It would be interesting to see if these trends would be replicated in other populations in the United States.”
