Detecting early breast cancer. Experience in a community hospital


, : Detecting early breast cancer. Experience in a community hospital. Cancer 64(12 Suppl): 2702-2705

The successful development and implementation of a mammography program at one community hospital is described. A substantial reduction in the size of breast mammography to change the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in one community hospital. As the vast majority of American women receive their medical care in community facilities, the more widespread development and implementation of community hospital-based mammography programs for early breast cancer detection has the potential to significantly improve survival rates for patients in whom these early lesions are found. Substantial improvement in the rate of early breast cancer detection can be achieved by community radiologists whether in private hospital or office-based practices.
