Description

The Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) is a research resource for studies designed to assess the delivery and quality of breast cancer screening and related patient outcomes in the United States.

The BCSC is a collaborative network of seven mammography registries with linkages to tumor and/or pathology registries. The network is supported by a central Statistical Coordinating Center.

Information on the number of observations in the Consortium's database can be found on the data and statistics page.

A full description of the history and early work of the BCSC can be found in Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium: Evaluating Screening Performance in Practice.
