  1. Efficacy of mammographic screening of the elderly : a case-referent study in the Nijmegen Program in The Netherlands.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Only a few small studies have been conducted to examine the usefulness of mammographic screening in elderly women.

    These studies suggest that the screening-related reduction in breast cancer mortality rates is less than the estimated 20% - 40% reduction observed for women aged 50-70 years at the time of their first screening.

    Purpose 

    We have studied the efficacy of continued mammographic screening for breast cancer of elderly women within our screening program.

    Methods 

    In 1975, a breast cancer screening program was started in the city of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
