Breast Screening in Nova Scotia

My work focuses on understanding the use of breast imaging services in Nova Scotia, with a specific focus on breast screening, in collaboration with the Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program.  We need to better understand how screening plays a role in the diagnosis of breast cancer.  It is important to ensure that all women in the province have access to the same standard of care.
