Over the past 30 years, eight major randomized controlled trials of breast cancer screening-with mammography and/or clinical breast examination-have been conducted.
Results from several trials have been updated during the past year, and initial results of three other trials have been reported.
The National Cancer Institute held an International Workshop on Screening for Breast Cancer in February 1993 to conduct a thorough and objective critical review of the world's most recent clinical trial data on breast cancer screening, consider the new evidence, assess the current state of knowledge, and identify issues needing further research.
