“Is there any evidence that doing this test is going to help me feel better or live longer? For most of these tests, the answer is no," says Lisa Schwartz of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice in a Bloomberg Business story, published by the website Fierce Medical Devices, about new guidelines on when women should start getting mammograms.

Schwartz is a professor of medicine and of community and family medicine at The Dartmouth Institute.
