Nettsider med emneord «mammography»
In an Op-Ed published in the Norwegian daily newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) on November 29, researchers from the Clinical Effectiveness Research group criticize Norwegian private hospital Aleris' offer to women for mammography screening. Aleris actively offers mammography to women outside the recommended screening age and with shorter intervals, a service which is associated with more harm than benefit. The authors suspect Aleris of creating health anxiety in order to maximize profit.
