Glimpse of the Future at BreastScreen Australia Conference 

The issues likely to impact breast screening operations into the future are the focus of BreastScreen Australia’s Key to the Future 2014 annual conference being held this week in Melbourne.

“This year’s conference will explore some of the really exciting emerging technologies, research frontiers and new clinical practice in breast cancer screening,” said Conference Committee Chair and BreastScreen Victoria CEO, Vicki Pridmore.

“We need to better understand how developments in genetic testing, x-ray technology, best clinical practice, recruitment research and consumer support could improve the effectiveness of what we do at BreastScreen, improve the service experience for women, and at what cost,” she said.
