Doctors’ Orders Differ from Mammogram Guidelines


Study finds that most still recommend the breast cancer screen for women in their early 40s

There are numerous expert organizations out there such as the ACR, SBI, ACOG, and NCCN that continue to recommend annual screening beginning at age 40. Even the ACS that supports annual screening beginning at age 40 OR 45. Only 1 organization, the USPSTF, recommends biannual screening beginning at age 50. The USPSTF analysis on which their recommendation was made admits more women will die from breast cancer with their recommendation. Why wouldn’t doctors continue to recommend screening beginning at age 40?.

About Ryan Polselli

Ryan Polselli designed MammoLink® to send a portion of every mammogram back to the community to the charity chosen by each patient. "Our current healthcare system forces patients to jump through an endless number of hoops to take care of themselves. It would be hard to design a more inconsiderate, inconvenient, and inefficient system. The system "bends" patients, often unreasonably, to fit the needs of the system, rather than "bending" to the needs of the patient. It is time that we completely redesign a healthcare system that puts patients first and gives patients complete control so that they can best take care of their health. This is especially true in the field of breast cancer screening and diagnosis." --Ryan Polselli, M.D., Diplomate of the American Board of Radiology, Fellowship Trained Breast Imaging Radiologist, Founder and CEO of MammoLink®
