Danny Hughes, professor in the school of economics, was quoted in the article "Disparities in Prostate Cancer Screening" in Axios on Nov. 12, 2021. The article discussed an article Hughes co-authored detailing his team's research revealing racial and ethnic disparities in the use of prostate MRI exams following an elevated prostate-specific antigen blood test.
Ultimately, I think we're going to need to fundamentally change guidelines so that we can minimize invasive biopsies and make sure people are getting the care they need," Hughes said.
