Description:
This report outlines the major epidemiological aspects of screening for breast cancer, drawing extensively on experience accrued at the ECCLES Breast Screening Programme over 5 years. It is not an exhaustive account of all aspects of screening. Many aspects, notably the technical, are not covered. These are perhaps best dealt with in a Quality Assurance document. Furthermore, as a research undertaking, data collection and analysis are ongoing, and will continue for some time. Some of the results presented, particularly those of the second screening round, must be regarded as estimates pro tempore. We have endeavoured, however, to present those results which may be pertinent to decisions about the future of screening for breast cancer in Ireland.
