Media Outlets Seek Scripps' Perspective on New Mammogram Guidelines

American Cancer Society's new recommendations spark debate

Dr. Borso KUSI, Scripps Health San Diego

Scripps Health diagnostic radiologists Vivian Lim, MD, and Maya Borso, MD, offered their insights about this development to local news outlets.
