  1. Fulltext. A proposal for a national mammography database : content, purpose, and value.

    Article - En anglais


    A national mammography database is a centralized, computerized method of data collection consisting of two possible parts : a national mammography audit and a system for monitoring and tracking patients.

    A national mammography audit refers to collecting and analyzing medical audit data of individual mammography practices at a national level and is a critical step in improving the interpretive component of mammography.

    The monitoring and tracking component refers to a centralized system that provides women and physicians with a recruitment and follow-up mechanism to optimize participation in mammography services.

    Both parts of a national mammography database represent important components in the improvement of mammography quality.

    However, unique scientific, legal, and fiscal concerns are important to consider before establishing a national mammography database.
