My name is Ryan Polselli. I am a breast imaging radiologist. Welcome to my site!
...following several years of clinical practice in breast imaging, Dr. Polselli recognized that there was a significant need for improvement with the current breast cancer screening system in the United States. With the hopes of addressing this need, Dr. Polselli started his own company, MammoLink®, in 2016.
MammoLink® is redefining the traditional relationship between patients, breast imaging radiologists and OB-gyn and family practice physicians. The company offers technological and radiological expertise to physicians directly involved in patient care in order to significantly simplify and expedite the breast cancer screening process for both patients and physicians.
MammoLink® is currently in the process of developing partnerships with physicain groups and breast cancer organizations throughout the United States.

Most physicians in the United States believe that overtreatment is harmful, wasteful and common.
Researchers surveyed 2,106 physicians in various specialties regarding their beliefs about unnecessary medical care. On average, the doctors believed that 20.6 percent of all medical care was unnecessary, including 22 percent of prescriptions, 24.9 percent of tests and 11.1 percent of procedures. The study is in PLOS One.
Nearly 85 percent said the reason for overtreatment was fear of malpractice suits, but that fear is probably exaggerated, the authors say. Only 2 to 3 percent of patients pursue litigation, and paid claims have declined sharply in recent decades.
Nearly 60 percent of doctors said patients demand unnecessary treatment. A smaller number thought that limited access to medical records led to the problem.More than 70 percent of doctors conceded that physicians are more likely to perform unnecessary procedures when they profit from them, while only 9.2 percent said that their own financial security was a factor.
