Spanish regions extend breast screening access

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Spanish region of Extremadura is to extend the upper age range of its breast screening programme and is considering a similar extension of the lower threshold. Initially, the former will be extended by five years to 70, in a move that will add some 33,000 women to the call-up group, and require the support of mobile screening units, said the regional health service (SES). The lower age threshold may be reduced from 50 to 45 years - screening is already offered in this age group to women with a family history.
