Sacramento Bee

A UC Davis study released Wednesday found that a computer program used to help radiologists read mammogram results in higher false-positive rates and increases the chances of a woman being called back for further testing.

The study, published in the August issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, analyzed 1.6 million film mammograms performed on more than 680,000 women.
