Canadian study shows gaps in breast screening:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A half of all Canadian women in the 50-69 age group are not receiving the recommended two-yearly mammographic screenings. That is the conclusion of a report published this month in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Using data from the national population health survey 1996-97, the study authors write that around three in 10 women in this age group did not intend to have a mammogram in the following two years, and that two in 10 had never had one. Half of women who had not had a recent mammogram reported that they or their doctor did not think it necessary, highlighting the importance of improved screening and educational programmes in raising awareness and recruitment levels.
