Facility Information

Between 1994 and 2009, the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) collected information from 296 radiology facilities that participated through one of the seven BCSC mammography registries.

The characteristics of a facility may change over time and information presented here reflects the most recent information available. The majority of the participating facilities are not associated with an academic medical center (94%) and approximately half are non-profit (51%) (percentages based on facilities not missing information).

The following figures and accompanying explanatory notes provide summary information about the facilities that participated in the BCSC from 1994 to 2009, including facility location and radiology practice type, where the information is not missing.

Location of Radiology Facilities Participating in the BCSC from 1994-2009

Pie chart titled: Location of Radiology Facilities Participating in the BCSC from 1994-2005[D]

This figure shows the distribution of the location of 255 radiology facilities that participated in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium for the years 1994-2005. Approximately half of the facilities (49%) are located in a hospital or are associated with a hospital and 42% are in an office not associated with a hospital. Sixteen facilities (6%) are mobile vans.

Radiology Practice Type of Facilities Participating in the BCSC from 1994-2009

Pie chart titled: Radiology Practice Type of Facilities Participating in the BCSC from 1996-2005[D]

This figure shows the distribution of the radiology practice type of 247 radiology facilities that participated in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium for the years 1994-2005. The majority of facilities (63%) are full diagnostic radiology practices. Fifteen percent are limited to breast imaging only and 13% are multi-specialty breast centers. The remaining 9% are non-radiology practices such as OB/GYN offices.
