Significant reduction in mortality was not observed in women under age 50 until recently; longer follow-up (18 years) now suggests delayed but significant benefit for these women as well (Habbema et al. 1986; Eddy 1987, personal communication). The Breast Cancer Detection Demonstration Project (BCDDP) conceived by the American Cancer Society and funded by the National Cancer Institute from 1974 to 1981 was an effort to test the feasibility of HIP type screening on a large scale basis. Although it was not 'a randomized trial, like the HIP study, it has provided some interesting data and certainly better results with mammography.
