To the Editor: As a researcher involved in the scientific evaluation of the Breast Cancer Risk and Genetic Testing CD-ROM by Drs Green and Fost,1 which was reviewed by Drs McGee and Malik,2 I am interested in helping to determine the value and particular uses of this tool. Will the CD-ROM be used to replace genetic counselors and will research be construed as justifying this practice?
