“Mammography is the best tool available to screen for breast cancer. At present, there is nothing to replace it. We need to make sure that women get the information they need to make informed decisions and to protect and enhance access to life-saving mammograms,” said Debra L. Monticciolo, MD, president of the Society of Breast Imaging.
The American College of Radiology (ACR), the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD) launched the Mammography Saves Lives™ campaign in late 2009. The Mammography Saves Lives coalition produced a series of TV and radio public service announcements airing nationwide.
