|Mammography follow-up rates||12.1% Measure: Mammography follow-up rates|
Sample data was collected between 07/01/2013 and 06/30/2014
Percentage of patients who had a follow-up ultrasound, mammogram or MRI of the breast within 45 days after a regular screening mammogram. A follow-up rate near zero might indicate missed cancer cases while a rate higher than 14% may indicate unnecessary follow up imaging tests.
Higher than 0% but lower than 14% is better.
