Date:1/4/2008

is finding, digital mammography screening was determined not to be cost-effective for all groups.

But many imaging centers have already switched to digital mammography.

"It's a pragmatic consideration; you have to make a decision. You can't run dual systems," said Dr. Jay Brooks, chairman of hematology/oncology at the Ochsner Health System in Baton Rouge, La. "As we're moving to the digital age, you have to make a financial decision."

Most Ochsner sites have converted to digital mammography in the past several years. Brooks' site in Baton Rouge, the last to switch, will be converting within the next 60 to 90 days, he said.
