    Delay in breast cancer diagnosis continues to account for the highest percentage of medical malpractice cases in the United States.

    A retrospective, computer-aided study was undertaken to investigate a number of parameters used in making medical-legal decisions in missed breast cancer cases.

    Over a 5-year period, 435 women with invasive breast cancers were registered at the Comprehensive University Breast Cancer Center.

    A close correlation between mammographic and final histologic size wasverified (R=0.74).

    In 5-mm increments, starting with a1.0-mm tumor, there was an increasing percentage of positive nodes identified with increasing size of the tumor.
