Rich women may be getting too many mammograms, while poor women are getting too few. That's the finding of a new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Researchers say wealthy women were nearly twice as likely to be screened for breast cancer as the poor.

It's believed poor women may be less likely to have supplemental Medicaid insurance needed for tests.
