BACKGROUND The aim of this paper is to give an overview of organisational issues of the Hungarian nationwide organised breast cancer screening programme and to provide the results of the first screening round of the programme for the years 2002-2003. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data were derived from the financial database of the National Health Insurance Fund(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the cumulative risk of a false-positive screening result in European mammographic screening programmes, and examine the rates and procedures of further assessment. METHODS A literature review was conducted to identify studies of the cumulative risk of a false-positive result in European screening programmes (390,000 women). We then(More)
Organised, nationwide screening for breast cancer with mammography in the age group of 45-65 years with 2 years screening interval started in Hungary in January 2002. The aim of this study is to analyse the attendance rate of breast screening programme for the 2006/2007 years, including the analysis of the ratio of screening and diagnostic mammography(More)
OBJECTIVES To summarize participation and coverage rates in population mammographic screening programmes for breast cancer in Europe. METHODS We used the European Network for Information on Cancer (EUNICE), a web-based data warehouse (EUNICE Breast Cancer Screening Monitoring, EBCSM) for breast cancer screening, to obtain information on programme(More)
OBJECTIVES In the early recognition of portal vein ligation (PVL) induced tumor progression, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) could improve diagnostic accuracy of conventionally used methods. It is unknown how PVL affects metabolic patterns of tumor free hepatic tissues. The aim of this preliminary study is to evaluate(More)
A comparison has been made between the English practice and the "Hungarian model" of cervical screening. In England, until 1986, extensive opportunistic screening was the practice, but--as it had no effect on cervical cancer mortality--afterwards, the screening policy was changed to be strictly in line with international recommendations. On the other hand,(More)
Theoretically, there is a real prospect for full eradication of cervical cancer by cytology screening. In several countries the burden of cervical cancer significantly decreased due to regular screening of the population. In Hungary, the complex "gynecological screening", including colposcopic examination, has a long tradition, however, the efforts of(More)
BACKGROUND Ligation of a branch of the portal vein redirects portal blood to nonligated lobes resulting in lobar hypertrophy. Although the effect of portal vein ligation on liver volume is well documented, the parallel alterations in liver function are still the subject of controversy. Our aim was to assess the time-dependent reactions of regional hepatic(More)
BACKGROUND Selective portal vein ligation (PVL) is followed by ipsilateral atrophy and contralateral hypertrophy of the liver lobes. Although the atrophy-hypertrophy complex induced by PVL is a well-documented phenomenon, the effect of different degrees of extended portal vein occlusion on liver regeneration is not known. The aim of this study was to assess(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study is to calculate the proportion of women having cytological examination (Pap smear) of cervix either within or outside of the Hungarian organized cervical cancer screening programme. METHODS The data derive from the financial database of the National Health Insurance Fund Administration (OEP) of Hungary covering the(More)
