PinkDrive intervention ‘over-rated’ – experts
The multi-disciplinary Breast Interest Group of South Africa (BIGOSA) claims PinkDrive has been forced to stop its mammographic screening activities – which Izindaba showcased as temporarily eliminating public sector mammography backlogs in our December issue – due to poor imaging and interpretation as well as failure to provide work-up for positive findings. The group, a multi-disciplinary national collective of medical professionals linked to breast health, further claims that PinkDrive violated multiple scientifically sound principles and failed to operate under ‘any kind of scientific scrutiny’.
