The Surprising Effect of Mammogram Recommendations (Amy Finkelstein, MIT)

Titolo:
The Surprising Effect of Mammogram Recommendations (Amy Finkelstein, MIT)
Descrizione:

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The current recommendation is that women should receive annual mammograms starting at age 40. But who is actually following this recommendation, and does that affect the test’s efficacy? MIT’s Amy Finkelstein and two of her coauthors, Tamar Oostrom and Abigail Ostriker, explore this question in this video.

This video is based on the following paper:
