Who We Are

By partnering with breast imaging facilities across the state of North Carolina, we collect and use breast imaging and associated cancer follow-up data to improve the performance of mammography, understand factors affecting the detection of breast cancer, and provide feedback to radiologists.  We work with the National Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium, a collection of seven mammography registries across the U.S., to advance breast cancer research.
