      Objective: To assess the budgetary impact of switching from screen-film mammography to full-field digital mammography in a population-based breast cancer screening program. Methods: A discrete-event simulation model was ...
    • Cost-effectiveness and harm-benefit analyses of risk-based screening strategies for breast cancer 

      Vilaprinyo Terré, Ester; Forné, Carles; Carles Lavila, Misericordia; Sala i Serra, Maria; Pla Farnós, Roger; Castells, Xavier; Domingo, Laia; Rué i Monné, Montserrat; Interval Cancer Study Group (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      The one-size-fits-all paradigm in organized screening of breast cancer is shifting towards a personalized approach. The present study has two objectives: 1) To perform an economic evaluation and to assess the harm-benefit ...
    • Cost-effectiveness of early detection of breast cancer in Catalonia (Spain) 

      Carles Lavila, Misericordia; Vilaprinyo Terré, Ester; Cots, Francesc; Gregori Gomis, Aleix; Pla Farnós, Roger; Román, Rubén; Sala i Serra, Maria; Macià, Francesc; Castells, Xavier; Rué i Monné, Montserrat (BioMed Central, 2011)
      Background: Breast cancer (BC) causes more deaths than any other cancer among women in Catalonia. Early detection has contributed to the observed decline in BC mortality. However, there is debate on the optimal screening ...
    • Cumulative risk of cancer detection in breast cancer screening by protocol strategy 

      Blanch, Jordi; Sala i Serra, Maria; Román Expósito, Marta; Ederra, M.; Salas, Dolores; Zubizarreta, Raquel; Sánchez-Jacob, Mercedes; Rué i Monné, Montserrat; Castells, Xavier (Springer Verlag, 2013)
      Background There is little information on the individual risk of screen-detected cancer in women over successive participations. This study aimed to estimate the 10-year cumulative breast cancer detection risk ...
    • Impact of risk factors on different interval cancer subtypes in a population-based breast cancer screening programme 

      Blanch, Jordi; Sala i Serra, Maria; Ibáñez, Josefa; Domingo, Laia; Fernández, Belén; Otegi, Arantza; Barata, Teresa; Zubizarreta, Raquel; Ferrer, Joana; Castells, Xavier; Rué i Monné, Montserrat; Salas, Dolores; Interval Cancer Study Group (Public Library of Science, 2014-10-21)
      Background: Interval cancers are primary breast cancers diagnosed in women after a negative screening test and before the next screening invitation. Our aim was to evaluate risk factors for interval cancer and their subtypes ...
    • Situación de la investigación en el cribado de cáncer de mama en España: implicaciones para la prevención 

      Sala i Serra, Maria; Salas, Dolores; Zubizarreta, Raquel; Ascunce, Nieves; Rué i Monné, Montserrat; Castells, Xavier (Elsevier, 2012)
      Objetivo: La finalización del despliegue de los programas de detección precoz de cáncer de mama en todas las comunidades autónomas de España ha facilitado el inicio de una investigación conjunta, con información procedente ...
    • Tumor phenotype and breast density in distinct categories of interval cancer: results of population-based mammography screening in Spain 

      Domingo, Laia; Salas, Dolores; Zubizarreta, Raquel; Baré, Marisa; Sarriugarte, Garbiñe; Barata, Teresa; Ibáñez, Josefa; Blanch, Jordi; Puig-Vives, Montserrat; Fernández, Ana Belén; Castells, Xavier; Sala i Serra, Maria; Interval Cancer Study Group (BioMed Central, 2014)
      Introduction: Interval cancers are tumors arising after a negative screening episode and before the next screening invitation. They can be classified into true interval cancers, false-negatives, minimal-sign cancers, and ...
