A Study to Establish a Radiology Consultation Clinic for Dense Breast Imaging


About this study

The survey study will answer the question as to whether consultation with a radiologist increases patient knowledge about supplemental screening exams available to women with dense breasts. We hypothesize that women with dense breast tissue do not know the supplemental screening exams that are available to them and their knowledge will increase after consulting with a radiologist. If this proves to be true, then the consultation is successful and consideration to implement a similar clinic at other institutions should be given. The survey will also evaluate patient satisfaction with the consultation.
