It's nice to learn there now may be a somewhat more objective basis to the belief that there is a benefit from listening to certain types of music in some cancer patients.
The USPSTF acknowledges that by only screening women beginning at age 50, many women in their 40's will die from breast cancer because they were not screened.
However, they say the number that will die is an "acceptable" number given the cost, effort, and potential harm when undergoing diagnostic procedures such as biopsies to exclude breast cancer.
I'm not sure I can wrap my head around that logic.
Sure, I understand their statistical analysis. I have reviewed it in detail and their math is correct.
What I don't understand is the value they assign to a human life...especially 40 year old women, many of whom are often mothers and who play an integral part in all of our lives.

He recently started his own company which is developing and marketing solutions for a patient sensitive breast cancer screening and diagnostic experience.
He has provisionally obtained two patents for medical devices he believes will make the field of breast imaging safer and more reliable. He is currently working to obtain a third patent for a more efficient and less traumatic biopsy device (eliminates the "startle-effect") for ultrasound guided breast biopsies.
Ryan is also currently working on a non-fiction book providing a personal and revealing behind-the-scenes look into the field of Breast Imaging titled, "The Mammography Affair."
