What is PERFORMS®?


  • PERFORMS is the leading mammographic educational self-assessment scheme
  • Developed by renowned international scientists and the UK’s Breast Screening Programme
  • Scientifically based on how mammograms are examined and how disease is perceived, detected and identified
  • Successfully used annually by all UK breast screening professionals for over 25 years – now available internationally

Every year the PERFORMS scheme amasses difficult and challenging recent screening cases from across the UK. These are then vetted by an expert radiological panel to derive the selected PERFORMS test sets of cases. Only difficult normal, benign and malignant cases are used. All normal cases have had a three year follow up normal screening outcome. Benign and malignant cases are biopsy proven.
