Family History Study (FH01 & FH02)

The Family History Study (FH01) was a research project evaluating the effectiveness of mammographic surveillance for women under 50 with a family history of breast cancer. Nearly 7000 women aged 40 to 49 years were enrolled between 2003 and 2007 and received yearly mammography for a mean of 4 years until the end of 2009.
