Summary
In this book intended for general readers, students, medical professionals, and women's health advocates, Reynolds, former chief of breast radiology at Indiana University, chronicles the history of screening mammography since its inception in the early 1970s and shows how decisions made in mammography's early history were guaranteed to make the test controversial. He describes how the creation of a culture of mammography screening was aided by social and political forces such as the feminist movement, and shows how politics came to dominate the debate over when screening should begin. He also considers the risks of overdiagnosis (the detection of cancers that would not cause symptoms in the individual's lifetime) due to mammography.
