- Screening Outcomes in Older US Women Undergoing Multiple Mammograms in Community Practice: Does Interval, Age, or Comorbidity Score Affect Tumor Characteristics or False Positive Rates? Braithwaite, Dejana; Zhu, Weiwei; Hubbard, Rebecca A.; O'Meara, Ellen S.; Miglioretti, Diana L.; Geller, Berta; Dittus, Kim; Moore, Dan; Wernli, Karen J.; Mandelblatt, Jeanne; Kerlikowske, Karla // JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute;3/6/2013, Vol. 105 Issue 5, p334
