One in every 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Screening tests, such as digital mammography and breast MRI, can often find breast cancer early when it's most treatable. Joining us today for Martha Jefferson Healthwise is Mary Beth Revak to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of some of the standard screening tests used today. Some of the quesitons answered by today's video are:
