ACR 2017 The Crossroads of Radiology


ACR2017VM33 - Overdiagnosis: Facts, Fight and Fallacies


May 23, 2017 10:00am ‐ May 23, 2017 12:00pm

Description

The purpose of this session to discuss the epistemic basis of overdiagnosis, make a distinction between overdiagnosis and false positives, explain why overdiagnosis in screening mammography is controversial and discuss prescriptions for overdiagnosis. Overdiagnosis is a controversial subject which tears through a lot of radiology. Whether radiologists like it or not, we are implicated in diagnosis and, therefore, overdiagnosis. However, coverage of this controversy in radiology meetings has been tepid. During this session we will bridge the knowledge gap and overcome the hesitancy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the epistemic basis of overdiagnosis.
  2. Explain the difference between overdiagnosis and false positive.
  3. Recognize the controversy behind overdiagnosis and discuss prescriptions.
