Dr. Tabár and Colleagues Discuss Canadian Study

News of the Canadian National Breast Screening Study and its findings have been making waves in the media recently.

But what do the findings really mean? Dr. László Tabár, M.D., F.A.C.R. (Hon), is familiar with the study. Dr. Tabár was invited personally by the study's leader, Dr. Anthony Miller, to look at the study's process, image quality and imaging techniques. What should women take from this trial? According to Dr. Tabár, women should take home one message: go for a mammogram, starting at age 40, and disregard this trial's findings.

To learn more about the trial, Dr. Tabár's involvement, and the study's findings, watch the video below.
