Title: Screening for breast cancer with mammography in Bohuslän County, Sweden.

Journal: Recent Results Cancer Res 119:60-4

Date: 1990

Abstract: The unique organization of breast cancer screening in Bohuslän, using a specially designed mammography bus, has allowed women from a relatively large area to be screened for breast cancer. The cooperation with radiologists and surgeons at the central hospitals in the county is very positive and interesting. As can be appreciated, this is a very streamlined and efficient operation. So far, we have arrived at the same results as pilot investigations in other counties.
