The article deals with the improving access to mammography and related services in U.S. hospitals. Some states, including Florida, have passed malpractice laws to ease liability concerns associated with difficult-to-read mammograms. At the same time, digital mammography is reshaping the field, spurring hospitals to redesign their workflow as they make the transition to the new technology. Overall, mammography access is adequate in most parts of the country, according to a 2006 report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office INSET: MRIs & MASTECTOMIES LINKED.
