To the Editor: In their recent article on false-positive screening mammograms and their effect on rescreening rates within the BreastScreen WA (BSWA) program, Sim and colleagues posit that an absolute reduction in future rescreening of 3 percentage points can be seen among women who are recalled for assessment but do not have breast cancer.1
