  • Interval Cancers as an Indicator of Perfomance in Breast Screening
    Breast Cancer, 2020
    Co-Authors: Ruth Warren, Stephen W. Duffy

    Abstract:

    Background
    The literature shows that Breast Screening performance varies between centers. Those who monitor the performance of Screening programs must use appropriate methods to demonstrate quality. Analysis of interval cancer rates provides one such measure. This study analyses interval cancers over a ten-year period in a single center of the UK National Breast Screening Program, offering Screening to a population of 45 000 women.

  • Screening organization and recall rate in a regional Breast Screening programme
    Journal of Medical Screening, 2018
    Co-Authors: Tina Beruchashwili, Rema Gvamichava, Stephen W. Duffy

    Abstract:

    ObjectiveTo use results on recall rates from a regional non-population-based Breast Screening programme to inform practice in a planned national population-based programme.MethodsWe analysed data o…

  • Determinations of low Breast Screening uptake using geographically weighted regression model
    2012 20th International Conference on Geoinformatics, 2012
    Co-Authors: Chen Chen, Yu Wang, Tao Cheng

    Abstract:

    In recent years, the overall Breast Screening uptake rate in South West London is lower than national average figure. It is well acknowledged that population turnover, minutes for travel time to Screening units, deprivation and culture factors impact on Breast Screening uptake from previous research. This paper focuses on the relationship between Breast Screening uptake and its determinant factors: Index of Multiple Deprivation score in 2007, percentage of African and Muslim, minutes for travel time to nearest Breast Screening unit in South West London through a traditional global model. Moreover, using a local regression model, Geographically Weighted Regression explores the specific reasons of the low figures of Breast Screening uptake and examines the most significant variables in each lower supper output area. The Geographically Weighted Regression model is used in testing the spatial dependency and spatial non-stationary of each variable, which reveals the influence across the region uniform or variable.

  • A review of the PERFORMS scheme in Breast Screening.
    British Journal of Radiology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Alastair G. Gale, Yan Chen

    Abstract:

    This review details the aetiology of the PERFORMS self-assessment scheme in Breast Screening, together with its subsequent development, current implementation and future function. The purpose of th…

  • Cross-Atlantic differences in reading the same Breast Screening cases
    Breast Cancer Research, 2011
    Co-Authors: Yan Chen, Alastair G. Gale, Michael G. Evanoff, U Zakir

    Abstract:

    American Breast Screening radiologists typically read a lower annual volume and recall more cases than their UK counterparts. This study investigated what happens when experienced Breast Screening radiologists from both countries examined the same FFDM case set, albeit using different resolution displays.

  • Breast Screening: PERFORMS identifies key mammographic training needs.
    British Journal of Radiology, 2006
    Co-Authors: Hazel J. Scott, Alastair G. Gale

    Abstract:

    The UK Breast Screening Programme has recently expanded the age range for invitation in the prevalent round to 70¬†years. In contrast, fewer radiologists now choose to specialise in the area of Breast cancer Screening. In response to this depletion in film-reading personnel, an increasing number of radiographers have been trained as advanced practitioners in order to film-read alongside the current radiologists. As part of the quality assurance programme for the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP), each film-reader can participate in a voluntary self-assessment scheme (Personal Performance in Mammographic Screening, PERFORMS) which consists of a number of recent challenging Breast Screening cases that are amassed nationally and distributed bi-annually. The scheme produces anonymous data on any areas of difficulties that individual participants have; these data can then be aggregated over groups of participants or over specific types of Screening cases. In this paper, the areas of di…
