All breast cancer cases diagnosed up to and including the fifth screen of the screening group, and the first screen of the control group at approximately year 7, were followed for breast cancer mortality. After the trial was closed, women in both groups were invited to regular screening. Breast cancer cases were ascertained through treatment centers, pathology laboratories, and the national cancer registration system, and follow-up was conducted through 1996.
