Patients' preference for learning the results of mammographic examinations.
The communication of diagnostic test results is an important aspect of the interaction between doctors and patients.
Communication of mammogram results is of particular interest because the test is used to detect a common and potentially dangerous malignancy and because patients in the United States are able in some locations to obtain mammography at their own request, rather than being referred by a physician.
We conducted a survey to learn about the preferences of a group of women at a traditional mammography center for learning the results of this commonly performed test.
