INTRODUCTION: The screening mammography decreases the mortality of female breast cancer. METHODS: A complex, independent centre of screening mammography has been operating in Debrecen since 1999. RESULTS: The number of the examinations were 10,399 in 1999 and 13,800 in 2000. The number of explored breast cancer cases were 43 (0.41%) in 1999 and 62 (0.45%) in 2000. CONCLUSION: Although the mortality reduction can be exactly measured after several years, we are convinced that the chances for a better life of these 107 women operated on with breast cancer in early state increased thanks to our project. The results of the breast cancer screening program in Debrecen fulfilled the professional requirements of mammographic service-screening.
