Breast Cancer Screening

What was measured?

What percentage of women in the HMO, ages 52-69, had a mammogram to test for breast cancer during the past two years?

These results are based on a sample of HMO patient administrative and medical records.

Why is it important?

Checking women for breast cancer is important for finding the cancer early when the chances are better for successful treatment. The mammogram test is the best way to find breast cancer early.

Look for differences of at least four percentage points.

Smaller differences are often not significant.
