Paper Abstract

The hypothetical risk of carcinogenesis to the breast from low dose mammography and the known benefits to the patient from detection of breast cancer at an early curable stage through mammographic screening will be assessed. Benefit/risk ratios will be derived based on the best available clinical and biological evidence. This analysis will support mammographic screening of all women above 40 years of age.
