As a radiologist, I regret Dr. Johnson's comment that the ACR has a potential conflict of interest in opposing these recommendations. Unfortunately, this represents one of the highest area litigation within the specialty of radiology and mammography does not reimburse well. Were it not for the beneficial service it provides, I'm sure many radiologists would love to drop it from their practice. While not a perfect test, it is the best screening tool we have for breast cancer and I trust in the credible, peer-reviewd scientific studies that show it's benefit.
Oh, by the way, most of us do actually care about our patients.
