We determined screening outcome of subsequent screens during and after the transition from screen-film mammography (SFM) to full-field digital mammography (FFDM). A consecutive series of 102,863 subsequent (SFM screens with a prior SFM screen (SFM-SFM cohort), 91,941 FFDM screens with a prior SFM screen (FFDM-SFM cohort) and 90,407 FFDM screens with a prior FFDM screen (FFDM-FFDM cohort) were obtained between January 2006 and July 2013. The referral rate and cancer detection rate (CDR) per 1,000 screens were higher at FFDM-SFM than at SFM-SFM (2.7% vs. 1.2% (p
