Questions Submitted

  • HI Thanks for the great talk. I have two questions: 1. The radiology centre I use reports breast density as a percentage. What is the % cutoff in order to order U/S in conjuction with mammography for screening? 2. If a woman get a digital tomosynthesis, why would a regular mammography be needed as well? Thanks
