We described here the national breast cancer-screening program that is used, in France, today. First we depict official rules and regulations along with the organization needed to screen a whole population. Then, a technical assessment is made on the efficacy and limits on mammography analyses leading to tumor classification. Finally, an evaluation of the program is discussed.
