Fox Chase researchers find no disparities in imaging before breast cancer surgery
Date:5/17/2012

roximately 6% of women were black; 87% were white.

To ensure no third factor might influence the result, the authors used statistical tools to adjust for any influence of demographics, tumor characteristics, and socioeconomic status on the results. "We tried to account for these subtle things that are associated with each other," Bleicher says. Once they took those other factors into account, they found that black women were no less likely than white women to receive imaging before surgery.

Interestingly, they did see that women who lived in areas where people are more highly educated were more likely to receive some types of imagingnamely ultrasound, breast MRI, CT scans, and bone scans, but not mammograms. It's possible that women who receive more education are more likely to request additional imaging or be more willing to undergo it, says Bleicher. "It's not clear why education predicts the use of some types of preoperative imaging."

He cautions that these data apply mostly to older women, and may not represent the picture of what happens in women who are younger, and lack health insurance.

These results do not mean the work is done, he adds. "We can't be complacent that there's not a problem," says Bleicher. "It's still highly possible that survival differences between black and white women with breast cancer can be improved. The next step is to investigate whether women with breast cancer experience any disparities in the types of treatment they receive. We still have more work to do."
