Purpose The purpose of the model is to predict the mortality associated with female breast cancer. The predictions may be by chronological year and/or age. Mortality may change by advances in treatment and/or changing dissemination of screening. The model incorporates the possibility that these latter two factors will change by chronological time and age. The model is general and enables the prediction of changes in mortality if technical advances are made by radiology or the discovery of other disease markers.
