BreastScreen SA failed to detect 72 cancers

The independent review, released today, was conducted by Associate Professor Warwick Lee, BreastScreen NSW’s state radiologist, after BreastScreen SA found that 95 fewer cancers than expected were identified between 6 September 2010 and 30 June 2012.

Thirteen radiologists reviewed 53,104 sets of digital screening mammograms and recalled 540 women for screening.
