Abstract
  • The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force & American Cancer Society offer conflicting mammography screening recommendations regarding age at first screen and frequency of screen which might lead to inconsistent provision of screening information between mammography facilities. Various information presented by mammography facilities could partially contribute to disparities in screening behaviors across Oregon. We compare the number of facilities reporting ACS, USPSTF or American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines and compute reading levels of their recommendations. Oregon has 165 licensed machines (58% digital mammography) operated at 108 facilities (35% of mammography machines located in rural zip codes). Some facilities shared websites; therefore 48 unique websites were coded between October 2015 and February 2016. This analysis will compare recommendations and reading levels between for profit imaging centers and non-imaging centers such as clinics. 18% of mammography are located for profit imaging centers. Imaging centers were more likely in urban zip codes – 24% of urban facilities are imaging centers compared with 6. 8% in rural areas. We compared differences in recommendations for age of first screening. A statistically higher percent of imaging centers (95%) recommended earlier first screening at age 40- 49 compared with non imaging centers *81%)). We also compared recommended intervals for screening. For women under 50 years, 60% of non-imaging centers recommended screening yearly compared with 72% of imaging centers recommended screening yearly (p<. 05). There were no difference for recommendations for screening intervals from women 50 and older, Reading levels using SMOG; grade-level estimates were different between types of centers. Imaging centers had a lower reading level for their recommendations (mean 11.9 grade level sd 8) versus non imaging centers mean 15.6 grade years (sd 7) (p=.05). Imaging centers that are located in urban areas, recommend screening earlier and provide resources in a reading level easier for most women.
