201 Health - - Anxiety -

In­stead of fo­cus­ing on the no­tion that women shouldn’t get a regular mam­mog­ra­phy be­cause of the neg­a­tive ef­fect of anx­i­ety, doc­tors think the dis­cus­sion should be cen­tered on how to al­le­vi­ate that anx­i­ety. Dr. Gail Starr ra­di­ol­o­gist and med­i­cal direc­tor at the Betty Tor­ri­celli In­sti­tute for Breast Care at Hack­en­sack Uni­ver­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter, sug­gests: • US­ING 3D IMAG­ING CALLED TO­MOSYN­THE­SIS. • HAV­ING PA­TIENTS RE­TURN PROMPTLY FOR AD­DI­TIONAL SCREEN­ING. • OF­FER­ING MORE RE­AS­SUR­ANCE AND ED­U­CA­TION.
