How PERFORMS helps
Breast cancer will affect 1 in 8 women at some stage, and early detection is important to maximise treatment. Breast screening is crucial to detection, however the low incidence rate during screening makes it difficult to spot early signs of cancer and for radiologists to know how well they are performing.
Examining carefully selected sets of difficult screening cases, coupled with immediate feedback and full statistical performance analyses is key to understanding your skills and improving your cancer detection.
