The content of this poster initially depicts the working practice and location of our department. As this is the first poster from Breast Test Wales, we felt it was important to include some of our background history. The second part of the poster presents the results of recent surveys undertaken at Breast Test Wales. The first survey shows the effect of increasing the kV to 34 to perform magnification views in mammography. The second survey concerns the T/R rate during assessment clinics, with some additional information on the general T/R rate.
