Episode Summary

Radiologist Roulette
"Breast cancer claims the lives of 40,000 women every year out of 200,000 who are diagnosed. The key to higher survival rates is early detection, and the single best method for early detection is the mammogram. What happens when the radiologist who reads the x-ray isn't qualified for the job, or is a specialist in another part of the body? Mistakes can happen, tumors can be missed. It's been called ""Radiologist Roulette"" and it is the subject of this episode of PBS's Now. This episode, season 1 episode 24, was originally aired on 06/2/2002."moreless
