Hawaiʻi and Pacific Island Mammography Registry

The Hawaiʻi & Pacific Islands Mammography Registry (HIPIMR) database aims to maintain a computerized database of women undergoing breast imaging in the state of Hawaiʻi. It will include demographic, clinical and risk factor information, breast imaging interpretations, cancer outcomes, and vital status obtained through linkage with the Hawaiʻi Tumor Registry (HTR) and Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and Vital Records (HSDHVR), respectively.

The main goals of the registry are to

  1. Better understand how well breast imaging tests find breast cancer in women of various ages and ethnicities,
  2. Provide information to radiologists to improve the overall interpretation of mammograms, and
  3. Assist participating radiology facilities to meet federal standards for quality control.

We hope to learn more about how mammograms and advanced breast imaging tests can best detect breast cancer and what characteristics of women and tumors influence detection.
