BreastScreen Australia – Policy on screening versus diagnostic mammography
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
The BreastScreen Australia Program is a population-based screening program designed to detect breast cancer early. Early detection increases the chances of successful treatment. Women who already have symptoms that need investigating should have a diagnostic mammogram and clinical assessment. This is not part of our screening program.
