Abstract: Ethnic and socioeconomic disparities pervade breast cancer patterns and outcomes. Mammography guidelines reflect the difficulty in optimizing mortality reduction and cost-effectiveness, with controversy still surrounding the 2009 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations. This study simulates USPSTF and American Cancer Society (ACS) guidelines' effects on stage, survival, and cost of treatment in an urban public hospital.
