Solis Mammography recently released a statement taking issue with incorrectly interpreted terminology used by reporters and others referring to a mammogram callback as a “false positive.” As evidence, the statement highlighted a study published Feb. 9 in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention that referred to mammography recalls as false positive mammograms. This led to news reports across the country stating that a false positive was defined as “a doctor telling a woman that cancer is present, but it turns out not to be.” Solis Mammography said this is more than a simple misspeak on the part of a reporter. It’s a common misunderstanding and is blatantly false.
