The European guidelines provide recommendations on screening and diagnosis of breast cancer.
Those on screening have been developed in the context of population-based organised screening programmes. They include recommendations for women, at average risk of breast cancer, between the ages of 40-74, on screening, frequency of screening, as well as recommendations on digital mammography screening and the addition of hand-held ultrasound, automated breast ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging compared with mammography screening alone for women with high breast density. They also inform decision-making for women at average risk who are recalled for suspicious lesions. They include advice about communicating results and training healthcare professionals involved in screening and diagnosis of breast cancer.
