Description

The best medical tool for detecting breast cancer is being driven to extinction by outrageous lawsuits, putting millions of women at risk. A practising radiologist confronts the legislative and legal tangles strangling breast-cancer screening today and argues for reforms to our legal and healthcare systems. Early detection of breast cancer can make the difference between life and death - and mammography is the best diagnostic tool available today. However, radiologists across the country, faced with the prospect of litigation and the high cost of malpractice insurance, now refuse to read mammograms. Radiology students are passing over specialising in breast imaging, and in the last few years over 700 mammography centres across the United States have closed their doors. Today, the number of women needing regular mammograms exceeds the capacity of the dwindling ranks of radiologists able and willing to read a mammogram. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the crisis and specific solutions.
