摘要

The benefit of invitation to mammographic screening observed in this trial is maintained as a highly significant 32% reduction in breast cancer mortality. Mammographic screening for breast cancer continues to save lives after up to 20 years. Screening derives this benefit by improving the distribution of tumors diagnosed with respect to prognostic categories based on node status, size, and histology of tumors. There is potential for modern screening programs with shorter interscreening intervals to achieve even greater improvements in prognostic category and greater reductions in breast cancer mortality. Mammography can discriminate a subpopulation of high-risk cases, those displaying casting-type calcifications on the mammogram, among very small tumors, with fundamental implications for diagnosis and treatment.
