Reclassification of interval cancers and implications for disclosure of audit

Draft guidelines have been circulated on disclosure of interval breast cancer audit, and interval cancer classification will be modified [1].

Blinded review and reclassification of interval cancers to the Southern Derby Breast Screening Programme from 1989 to 2002 was carried out.

Wording of the new classification places fewer cases in 'suspicious features' than were previously in 'false negative'. The results and implications for disclosure of audit are discussed.
