To Screen? Or Not to Screen

In November 2009 a report that questioned the merits of routine mammography screening sparked a firestorm of protest, from women’s advocacy groups and medical professionals alike.

But is that criticism deserved?

Dr. Jeff Wieman of the Saint Luke’s Cancer Institute and Terry Rosell of the Center for Practical Bioethics talk about the report and a March 24, 2010 forum in Kansas City examining the issues around this controversy.
