Clinical Corner: NAMS Practice Pearl

This Practice Pearl describes an approach to screening mammography for average-risk women that encourages the use of shared decision-making that addresses benefits (early diagnosis and decreased mortality) and potential harms (false positives and overdiagnosis/overtreatment) in determining screening mammography initiation, frequency, and duration for women at average risk of breast cancer.
