When push comes to shove: Addressing compression in mammography
10/5/04 By Shalmali Pal at www.auntminnie.com
In fact, breast imaging has only one truly scary "C,"
and it isn't compression, according to Bonnie Rush, a mammography
technologist and president of Breast Imaging Specialists in San
"When a woman comes in for a mammogram, the message that
keeps going through her head is the mantra of breast cancer: 'I've
probably got breast cancer,' 'I'm sure I've got breast cancer,'
'What if I've got breast cancer?''' Rush said. "Instead of
talking about that big 'C,' she talks about ... compression since
she dares not talk about her fear of breast cancer."
