Table 3 Numbers and incidence rate of advanced stage breast cancer (UICC II+] in the period after the initial screening (interval ABC plus ABC detected at first subsequent screening] and in the period after the first subsequent screening (interval ABC plus ABC detected at the second subsequent screening], compared with the reference ABC incidence rate and expressed as a relative reduction (in %). Regular participants of the mammography screening program in North Rhine-Westphalia, 2005 to 2013
