Abstract: In estimating the impact of mammography and adjuvant treatment on U.S. breast cancer mortality rates, several parameters were common to all the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) models participating in the breast cancer base case. Models either used the parameters directly as input or calibrated their models to reproduce the common set of parameters. This chapter describes the common input parameters that are not specifically discussed elsewhere in the monograph.
