Mortality Among Women Enrolled in MRI enabled Breast Cancer Screening

I've just had an article published in the journal Radiology focusing on the mortality/survivorship results of MRI-enabled breast cancer screening. It takes a very long time to acquire mortality/survivorship data in a breast cancer screening study. Typically a population is followed for a long time (often more than 10 years) in order to establish what percentage of women who develop breast cancer go on to survive the disease many years after a diagnosis from the screening method being tested.
