Large Scale User Evaluation

Breastlight Usage Study

In July 2008 PWB Health commissioned an independent market research company to carry out a large scale study on Breastlight usage.

The objectives of the study were to assess how Breastlight was used, how it affected women’s attitude to breast awareness and breast screening and to give an indication of the frequency of referrals.

The results – 1087 women

Breastlight encouraged more frequent breast awareness

After using Breastlight, regular checkers (once a month and more) increased from 44% to 76%
After using Breastlight, less frequent and non – checkers decreased fom 34% to 8%

Breastlight was particularly valued by certain groups

Women 30 – 49 who are not having regular mammograms
Women with lumpy breasts
Women with large breasts

Women said Breastlight was easy to use
Seen by women as an addition to their current breast awareness & screening routines rather than a substitute
Were more confident after using Breastlight

Of the 1087 women, 14 (1.3%) consulted a GP because they were concerned
Of these, three have had mammograms and one was subsequently diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. She has had an operation and is recovering well.

The outcome of the mammograms for the two other women is awaited.
