Amanda Dibden talks to ecancer at the 2013 NCRI Cancer Conference in Liverpool about the introduction of two-view mammography at incident screens in the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP).

The effect of two-view mammography on interval cancer rates has yet to be assessed. The reduction in interval cancers is consistent with the increase in screen detected cancers seen following the introduction of two-view mammography at incident screens. The results provide further evidence of the benefit of the use of two-view mammography at incident screens.
