The Karma project
Project leader: Per Hall
The Karma project is conducted in close collaboration with four hospitals in Sweden, Södersjukhuset, Helsingborg, Landskrona and Lund. Women attending a mammography, screening or clinical, at any of these hospitals are invited to participate in the Karma project. Upon acceptance, participants fill out a web-based questionnaire and donate blood. We also ask for their informed consent to store the processed and raw mammograms and to link the personal ID to the Swedish Inpatient, Prescription, Cancer, Emigration/Immigration and Cause of Death Registers. We are also allowed to link participants to the nationwide Breast Cancer Registry (INCA).
