To demonstrate the ability of a mass mammography screening program to provide consistently high-quality mammography screening, while at the same time sustain a large volume of patients to keep the cost of mammography low.
A public-funded, mass mammography screening program, begun in 1988, is currently being conducted in five Canadian provinces.
For the Screening Mammography Program of British Columbia, complete follow-up data are available for the first 57 months of operation.
During that time, the program expanded from one center with five radiologist screeners to 14 centers with 30 radiologist screeners.
There were 201,937 examinations performed on 128,325 women, 35% of whom were younger than 50 years.
