Myth: All Mammograms are the Same
Myth: It doesn't matter where you go, all mammograms are the same.
Fact: When selecting a provider, look for focused expertise, because it does matter who reads your mammogram.
Mammograms, and the providers who perform them, vary greatly. The interpretation of screening results is most accurate when performed by sub-specialized breast radiologists who read a high volume of both screening and diagnostic mammograms and who are audited regularly on their screening and interpretation through peer review. The other critical factor is technology. A screening protocol centered on 3D mammography has been clinically proven to increase the early detection of breast cancer.
