Clinical Policy Changes

From July 16 2015, BreastScreen Victoria will implement eligibility changes for women who have a condition that may put them at an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

This includes women with:

  • Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia (ADH)
  • Atypical Lobular Hyperplasia (ALH)
  • Lobular Carcinoma in Situ (LCIS)
  • Women with Symptoms
  • Women with a personal history of breast cancer

For further information, please view the FAQs.

The policies were reviewed in order to ensure BSV was in line with:

  • BreastScreen Australia (BSA) policy
  • Recommendations of the BSA Evaluation
  • Current Clinical Best Practice

An interdisciplinary Clinical Reference Group was convened to advise the review process. The members included Dr Jill Evans (State Radiologist BreastScreen Victoria), Dr Warwick Lee (State Radiologist BreastScreen NSW), Ms Cathy Poliness (Surgeon), Mr Stewart Hart (Breast Surgeon and Surgical Oncologist) and Prof Bruce Mann (Breast Surgeon and Surgical Oncologist).
