According to a study published in the June 15 issue of the journal Cancer, the proportion of U.S. women age 40 and older who said they have undergone a mammogram in the previous two years declined from 70% to 66% from 2000 to 2005.

"GE's goal is to enhance breast care for women worldwide and bring this technology to those who otherwise would not have access to it," David Caumartin, general manager of Global Mammography for GE Healthcare, said.
