  1. Fulltext. The danger of applying uniform clinical policies across populations : the case of breast cancer in American Indians.

    Article - En anglais



    This study examined the implications of annual screening mammography for cost and mortality in American Indian populations with differing baseline breast cancer rates.


    A decision tree compared annual screening mammography and screening clinical breast examination with referral for diagnostic mammography when appropriate.

    The decision tree was constructed to examine the effect of different baseline cancer rates, stage at diagnosis, and stage-specific survival.
