In Annals of internal medicine Mireille Broeders and colleagues from the European Commission Initiative on Breast Cancer (ECIBC) Guidelines Development Group provide a synopsis of recommendations on organized breast cancer screening programs for women aged 40 to 75 years.
The target audience for the guidelines includes women, health professionals, and policymakers (https://healthcare-quality.jrc.ec.europa.eu/european-breast-cancer-guidelines).The recommendations address digital mammography screening and the addition of hand-held ultrasonography, automated breast ultrasonography, or magnetic resonance imaging compared with mammography alone. The recommendations also discuss the frequency of screening and inform decision making for women at average risk who are recalled for suspicious lesions or who have high breast density.
Mireille Broeders is member of theme Women's cancers.
