Initiatives -
Two important objectives of the BCSC are: * to enhance the current understanding of breast cancer screening practices; * to help improve the practice of community-based mammography screening for women with and without a personal history of breast cancer. Both objectives are aimed at improving the balance of benefit and harms of breast cancer screening by providing clinically meaningful, robust evidence based on a woman’s breast cancer risk and screening modality with the ultimate goal of reducing breast cancer mortality. *BCSC is a collaborative network of six active breast imaging registries and two historic registries*
