Audit Feedback on Reading Performance of Screening Mammograms

Purpose: The effectiveness of screening mammography depends on the ability to detect abnormalities and interpret these findings accurately; both tasks are challenging and require ongoing education to maintain and improve interpretative skills. Some countries with mammographic screening programs have developed audit and feedback systems to help screen readers assess and improve their reading skills.

Members: Berta Geller (Chair), Pam Marcus (NCI contact), Solveig Hofvind, Jacques Brisson, Rachel Bennet, Warwick Lee, Madeleine Wall, Anath Flugelman

Activities: This working group is administering a survey to learn more about systems for audit feedback on reading performance in member countries of the ICSN with mammography screening programs.
