Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

The conventional wisdom in medicine is that more care leads to better health. Physicians have urged their patients to get their annual physical exams and regular screenings, in the interests of detecting certain conditions like breast or prostate cancer early. Research has shown, however, that many medical tests and procedures are unnecessary, a waste of money, and in some cases harmful. This edition of Physician Focus will examine the issues surrounding over testing, over treatment, and over diagnosis in medicine and what it means for patients.
