Mammography: How Effective Is It?

TheoryLab Podcast with Drs. Anne Marie McCarthy and Lauren Teras

“One thing we know is that screening mammogram quality varies quite a bit. This is particularly a problem in lower-income neighborhoods, and we know that Black women are more likely to be screened with a mammogram that is of lower quality. So something that is super important for policy makers and all of us to push for is to improve [the availability of] higher quality mammograms for all women."—Anne Marie McCarthy, PhD, ACS grantee from University of Pennsylvania Medical School
