The objective of this study was to determine the accuracy of self-reports of mammography use by low-income women.
Mammography van records were used to verify self-reports of mammography use in the past year by women aged 50 through 75 years who had visited five community health centers (n=237).
Van records verified mammography use for 99% of these women (82% within the previous year and 98% within the past 2 years).
Forty percent of those with van records who reported both month and year of the mammogram were accurate.
