Mammograms are considered important for the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. There are two types of mammograms - diagnostic and screening. Diagnostic mammograms are requested by a physician when there is a suspicion of cancer. Screening mammograms are conducted to look for evidence of cancer when there are no other symptoms. The guidelines for the use of screening mammograms vary between the two countries. In Canada, screening mammograms are recommended for most women between the ages of 50 and 69 every two years. In the United States, The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recommends that women between 40 and 74 years of age have a mammogram every one to two years. To ensure comparability, women aged 50 to 69 were selected to compare mammography use in the two countries.

Overall, the proportion of women who had a mammogram within the last 2 years was 82% in the U.S. and 74% in Canada. Over 60% of women aged 50-69 in the U.S. had a mammogram in the last 12 months compared with less than half (48%) in Canada. Conversely, one in four women aged 50-69 in Canada had a mammogram one to two years ago compared with 17% in the U.S. There was no difference between the two countries regarding the proportion of women aged 50-69 years who had never had a mammogram.
