Radiologist Roulette
More on This Story:
Women's Health Resource Map

NOW's story "Radiologist Roulette" stresses the importance of mammograms in breast cancer detection — and the importance of finding a practiced, qualified radiologist to interpret your mammogram. Thanks to the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act of 2000 more women than ever are eligible for subsidized mammograms. Every state has a Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, or BCCP, program. State governments are also a first stop on the way to finding out about radiologists in your area. Use the map and links to find these important programs in your locale.

Another key resource is the agency ultimately responsible for overseeing radiologist performance, The Food and Drug Administration.
