  1. How much of the recent rise in breast cancer incidence can be explained by increases in mammography utilization ? A dynamic population model approach.

    Article - En anglais

    Largely unexplained increases in breast cancer incidence of about 1% per year have been documented back to the 1940s.

    Since 1982, breast cancer incidence in women aged 40 years and above has been increasing at a faster rate than this long-term secular trend, especially in women aged 60 years and above.

    Increases in the use of mammography since 1982 (which have been documented in population surveys of women) provide the most plausible explanation for the incidence increase over the long term secular trend.
