Physicians at Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York have created a website that provides women aged 40-49 a personalized experience as they try to decide whether to get mammograms.

The site, Breast Screening Decisions, includes a breast cancer risk assessment, information about possible screening mammogram outcomes for women who have similar risk, and the screening options available to them. It also provides women with a summary of their own risk and possible mammogram outcomes, and helps them clarify their concerns and beliefs about screening, especially their tolerance for uncertain screening results and treatment outcomes.
