The curent detectability of breast cancer in a mammographic screening program : a review of the previous mammograms of interval and screen-detected cancers.
The occurrence of an interval cancer in a mammographic screening program is indicative of a suboptimum effect on mortality, because the very aim of the screening is to detect as many cancers as possible and at their earliest possible stage.
In several studies, the previous screening mammograms of patients with an interval cancer were reviewed and the reasons for the « missed diagnosis » were classified into four categories: « screening error » (20-29%), « minimal sign present » (30-40%), « radiographically occult » (33-58%), or « radiographically occult at diagnosis » (occult both at previous screening and diagnosis; 7-16%).
