Abstract
Background and Aims: Assessing the performance of Breast Cancer screening programmes is essential to detect and remedy weaknesses and to improve the quality of the screening services. This study aimed to assess the coverage rate, participation rate, and recall rate of the Breast Cancer Screening in Riyadh Region.

Methods: This was a retrospective study in 11 Riyadh peripheral provinces. We used secondary data of women referred for screening and women who underwent mammography screening. Outcomes of the study included: Coverage rate by invitation; Coverage rate by examination; Participation rate; Recall rate.

Results: The invitation coverage rate was 5.2%, and it was highest among women in the age group 50-59 years (32.7%). The examination coverage rate was 1.1%, with women in the age group 50-59 years constituting the highest proportion (7%). The participation rate was 21.4% and was highest among women in the age group 50 to 69 years (22.4%). The recall rate was 10.1% and was highest among women in the age group < 40 years (18.6%).

Conclusion: In this study to assess the performance of the breast cancer screening programme, we detected low coverage and participation rates, most probably due to the opportunistic approach followed in inviting the target population, in addition to the geographical accessibility problem of the mammography testing sites. The recall rate aligned with the level set by the Saudi National Breast Cancer Screening Programme.

Key words: Breast cancer screening, coverage rate, participation rate, recall rate, Saudi Arabia
