The New York Times interviews Christine Pellegrino, M.D., about patient reactions to the new breast cancer screening guidelines issued by the United States Preventive Services Task Force. The Task Force changed its recommendations for the use of mammography based on multiple sources of evidence, including a comprehensive analysis of various screening schedules published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Clyde Schechter, M.D., associate professor of family and social medicine and of epidemiology & population health, was a co-author of the study. Dr. Pellegrino is director of the breast clinic at the Montefiore-Einstein Center for Cancer Care and assistant clinical professor of medicine at Einstein. (Tuesday, November 17, 2009)
