Increasing physician volume requirement could improve mammogram accuracy, study concludes

lly and have a higher screening focus have 50% fewer false-positive diagnoses (168 versus 320 per 2,500 examinations) and miss about one cancer per 2,500 examinations.

"Most factors that influence the sensitivity of mammography are not easily modified, e.g., a woman's age, mammographic breast density, and a physician's years of experience. Physician volume and screening focus can be altered, particularly because the Mammography Quality Standards Act is actively involved in the monitoring of physician volume. Raising the annual volume requirements in the Mammography Quality Standards Act might improve the overall quality of screening mammography in the United States," the authors write.
