Defends breast a rays Durham a the director of the breast cancer detection demonstration project at Duke University or. Robert Mclelland says the benefits of mammography Low dose a rays of the breasts far outweigh any theoretical risk for women under 50. Or. Mclelland issued his statement wednesday a Day after the National cancer Institute said in Washington that routine use of a rays to detect breast cancer should be restricted to women Over 50 and those younger women in High risk groups. The Institute in conjunction with the american cancer society made its recommendations because of studies which it said suggested the a Ray screen ing process itself May in crease the risk of breast cancer in some women Mclelland said that mammography used in the Duke research project has detected cancers that would not have been found by routine physical methods in nine women under 50. That s More than half the cases we be found in this age he said. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death of women he said. The Only Way we re going to do anything about that is to diagnose the disease Mclelland disagreed with those who say mammography does t Benefit women 35-50 and that it might even cause a Small number of cancers. Any presumed risk is based on studies of women receiving High doses of Radia Tion in the world War ii atomic bomb blasts in Japan or during treatment for non cancerous conditions he said. Mammography uses far lower doses. Mclelland said. Even if the risk is real the number of cancers that might be produced by routine mammography is significantly less than the number that would be detected in women 35-50 years he added. A Mammogram classification system proposed by or. John Wolfe of Detroit could help prevent breast cancer by pinpointing women of highest risk Mclelland said. Duke University s breast cancer project has screened 10.090 women from 16 North Carolina counties since it began in june 1974. A total of 51 cancers has been found including 16 among women 35-50 years old. Mclelland said none of the women screened had any breast cancer symptoms.
