An analysis of U.S. data on breast cancer incidence and survival rates from 1976 to 2008 and survey data estimating how many women get mammograms indicated that mammography has been effective in detecting early-stage breast cancer but has not led to fewer cases of more serious, advanced cancer. Researchers estimated that 1.3 million women who received mammograms during the period were overdiagnosed. The study appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine.
