Why are there so many guidelines?

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

“Last week, I took my family to visit my parents in Michigan.  Surrounded by the crisp reds, oranges, and ambers of the autumn leaves, a light breeze on a crystal clear blue sky day, drinking hot apple cider, as my young kids played in a pumpkin patch with their grandfather, I was talking with my mother.  She had just finished a water aerobics class and post-workout lunch with her friends.  After telling them that I was visiting for the week, and what I do for a living, they were filled with questions regarding all of the confusing information about screening mammograms.  ‘Why are there so many guidelines?  Can’t anybody agree?’”

The Society of Breast Imaging‘s goal for its initiative End the Confusion is to provide evidence based information on breast cancer screening. We will continue to provide information and resources as well as our views on the latest breast cancer screening news so we encourage you to regularly visit the website, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@BreastImaging). Hopefully we have addressed and will continue to address any and all confusion you experience when it comes to breast cancer screening. 

*The Society of Breast Imaging welcomes contributions from guest bloggers. If you would like to be a guest blogger, please review the guidelines here and email your blog post to info@sbi-online.org.*
