Research in action: mammography utilization following breast cancer awareness campaigns in Lebanon 2002-05
AbstractFour consecutive annual surveys of 1200 women each were conducted in Lebanon in connection with the National Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns [2002-05] to measure the prevalence of mammography utilization and the impact of these campaigns, and to highlight regional and demographic differences. The utilization of mammography in the previous 12 months was low and increased only slightly over 4 years [from 11% to 18%]. In the 2005 campaign, it was twice as high [25%] in greater Beirut than in mostly rural areas, and among women aged 40-59 years [about 21%] compared with younger [12%] or older [11%] women. In each wave, repeat mammograms were less common than first time screening
