Tumor registry audit of mammography in community practice.
North Pacific Surgical Association. Annual meeting. Vancouver BC CAN, 1993/11/12.
The 395 analytic breast cancers logged into a commity hospital tumor registry from 1988 to 1992 included information as to (1) the mode of detection and (2) the time interval since prior mammography.
Mammography alone detected 44% of the cancers in women ruder 50 years of rye and 47% of the cancers in women over 50 years of rye.
The American Joint Committee on Cancer's 1988 « Manual for Staging of Cancer » TEM staging of mammographically detected cancers in both rye groups was similar, ie, there were 89% stage 0/1 in women aged under 50 and 86% in women over age 50.
Twenty-one percent of the mammographically detected cancers were in women under age 50% whereas a disproportionate 36% of the « interval cancers » occurred in this group.
